PREFACE. 

In the domain of Sunday-school literature there seems to be a perennial 
demand for music— more music ; and although the Editor cannot hope to 
satisfy all requirements, yet he puts forth this book as an earnest effort to 
supply the " Children of the Church " with music which shall not be above 
their comprehension, nor below a standard befitting the dignity of the 
Church. This book is the outcome of many years work, and has occasioned 
the Editor much anxious thought and care, and no labor has been spared 
to make it a true helper in the work of the Church among the little ones. 
Of the Hymns it will be noticed that quite a number are from the Church 
Hymnal. This has been done so as to permit the use of both at Children's 
Services and Festivals. Care has been taken in the selection to avoid the 
doggerel and the false sentiment which is frequently put forth for children 
(most of the hymns being either prayer or praise), and to secure a tone 
which, while being suitable for children, is churchly. 

As to the tunes, the Editor has endeavored to avoid on the one hand the 
trash which in so many quarters passes for music, and on the other hand 
music which, while scientifically correct, lacks that bright melody and 
swing which he deems essential to tunes intended for children. He con- 
stantly hears the complaint that children will not learn certain tunes. An 
examination has in every case shown such tunes to be deficient in melody, 
or the intervals not easy. 

Two services for use in schools are given, and a short choral service for 
festivals. The services are given in deference to the wishes of some who 
prefer them, but the Editor is of the opinion (in which he finds he is joined 
by many Sunday-school workers), that if the Sunday-school is to be, as it 
ought, the nursery of the Church, the scholars should be taught the Prayer 
Book, and what better plan can be taken than using selections from it at 
the opening and closing of the school ? A sufficient portion of the Prayer 
Book service is given to enable Superintendents to make such selections as 
they may think proper. 

No Psalms for chanting are given. The Editor deems pointing unin- 
telligible to the majority of children, and thinks that the only practicable 
plan for teaching children chanting is by having a leader who understands 
it, and will teach the divisions by singing with the children. As pointed 
Psalters are easily obtained, and much difference of opinion exists as to the 
best pointing, he deems total omission of chants best. 

The Editor desires to record his thanks to Rev. J. H. Hopkins, D. D., 
Rev. A. G. Mortimer, and W. B. Gilbert, Esq., Mus. Doc, for permission to 
use tunes owned by them, and to Mr. F. L. Armstrong, for much valuable 
assistance kindly rendered. 

As a number of the tunes and arrangements in this book are the copy- 
right of the Editor and others, such must not be used without permission.

SERVICE BOOK 

FOR 

SUNDAY SCHOOLS AND FESTIVALS. 



A Form of Service for the Opening of a School. 



The Teachers and Scholars standing up in their respective classes, the Superintendent 
shall say: 

God spake these words and said : Remember that thou keep holy the Sab- 
bath day, Six days shalt thou labor, and do all that thou hast to do; but the 
Seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God. In it thou shalt do no man- 
ner of work, thou and thy son and thy daughter, thy manservant and thy 
maidservant, thy cattle, and the stranger that is within thy gates. For in six 
days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea and all that in them is, and 
rested the seventh day; wherefore the Lord blessed the seventh day and hal- 
lowed it. 

Sch. Lord, have mercy upon us and incline our hearts to keep this law. 

Sup. This is the day which the Lord hath made. 

Sch. We will rejoice and be glad in it 

Then shall be sung a Hymn, and after that ( if thought desirable ) a portion of Holy 
Scripture shall be read either resjponsively or by the Superintendent alone, after 
which the Teachers and Scholars, all kneeling, shall say with the Superintendent : 

Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom 
come. Thy will be done on earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our 
daily bread, And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass 
against us. And lead us not into temptation ; But deliver us from evil : For 
Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen. 

Sup. Lord, hear our prayer. 

Sch. And let our cry come unto Thee. 

Sup. Remember, O Lord, Thy tender mercies. 

Sch. For they have been ever of old. 

Sup. Remember not the sins our youth. 

Sch. But pardon our iniquity, for it is great. 

Sup. Lead us in Thy truth, and teach us. 

Sch. For Thou art the God of our salvation. 

Sup. Hold up our goings in Thy paths. 

Sch. That our footsteps slip not. 

SUP. Hear us, O Lord, for Thy mercy is great. 

Sch. And bless us this day for Christ our Saviour* s sake. 

Sup. Most merciful Father, send down upon Thy servants, the teachers in 
this school, Thy heavenly blessing. Grant that Thy Word in their mouths 
may never be spoken in vain, and that in all their words and deeds they may 
seek Thy glory, and the increase of Thy kingdom. 

Sch. Lord, hear this prayer for Christ our Saviour's sake. 



SUP. O Lord, who never failest to help and govern those whom Thou dost 
bring up in Thy steadfast fear and love; give Thy blessing to all who are taught 
in this Sunday-school ; make them obediently to follow whatsoever in Thy 
Holy Word they now shall learn. Let them always be in safety under Thy 
protection, and abide in Thy love unto their live's end. 

Sch. Lord, bear this prayer for Christ our Saviour J 8 sake. 

SUP. The blessing of God .Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy 
Ghost, be upon us this day, and for ever. 

Sch. Amen. 



Another Form of Service for the Opening 1 of a School. 



Srp. Hear the w r ords of the Gospel : They brought young children to Christ 
that He should touch them ; and His disciples rebuked those that brought 
them. But when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased, and said unto them, 
Suffer the little children to come unto Me and forbid them not ; for of such is 
the kingdom of God. And He took them up in His arms, put His hands upon 
them and blessed them. 

Sup. Son of God, we beseech Thee to hear us. 

Sch. Son of David, have mercy upon us. 

Srp. O Saviour of the world, who by Thy cross and precious blood hast 
redeemed us. 

Sch. Save us and help us, we humbly beseech Thee, Lord. 

Then shall be sung a Hymn, and after that ( if thought desirable ) a portion of Holy 
Scripture shall be read either responsively or by the Superintendent alone, after 
which the prayers following shall be said, all kneeling: 

Sup. O Lord, we beseech Thee, mercifully hear our prayers, and spare all 
those who confess their sins unto Thee ; that they whose consciences by sin are 
accused, by Thy merciful pardon may be absolved. 

Sch, Spare us. good Lord. 

Sup. O God, for as much as without Thee, we are not able to please Thee, 
mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our 
hearts. 

Sch. O God, make clean our hearts within us. 

Sup. Almighty God, our heavenly Father, look down in mercy on all who 
teach, and on all who learn in this Sunday school ; pardon and deliver us from 
all our sins : confirm and strengthen us in all goodness; and bring us to ever- 
lasting life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Sch. Amen. 



A Form of Service for the Close of a School. 



The Teachers and Scholars standing ti]t in their respective Classes, the Superintendent 
shall give out a Hymn, and afterwards the following shall be said: 

Sup. The Lord is nigh unto all that call upon Him. 
Sch. Unto all that call upon Him in truth. 
Sup. Let Thy merciful kindness. O Lord, be upon us. 
Sch. As we do put our trust in Thee 



Sup. Lord, we pray Thee that Thy grace may always prevent and follow 
us, and make us continually to be given to all good works; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. 

Sch. Amen. 

Sup. Grant to us, O Lord, we beseech Thee, the spirit to think and do 
always such things as are right; that we who cannot do anything that is good 
without Thee, may by Thee be enabled to live according to Thy will; through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Sch. Amen. 

Sup. Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, 
the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be honor and glory. 

Sch. Amen. 



Another Form of Service for the Close of a School. 



After a Hymn has been sung, and an address, or other general instruction, has been 
delivered ( if such be usual), the Teachers and Scholars shall kneel in their respective 
Classes, and the following shall be said : 

Sup. Lift up your hearts. 

Sch. Lord, teach us to pray. 

Sup. Almighty God, we make our humble supplications unto Thee; let 
Thy Fatherly hand ever be over us ; let Thy Holy Spirit ever be with us ; and 
so lead us in the knowledge of Thy word, that in the end we may obtain ever- 
lasting life. 

Sch. Lord, hear this prayer for Christ our Saviour's sake. 

Sup. Be merciful, O Lord, to Thy servants, the Teachers in this School ; 
and daily increase in them Thy manifold gifts of grace, the spirit of wisdom 
and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge 
and true godliness. 

Sch. Lord, hear this prayer for Christ our Saviour's sake. 

Sup. Defend, O Lord, these Thy children with Thy heavenly grace, that 
they may continue Thine for ever, and daily increase in Thy Holy Spirit more 
and more, until they come to Thy everlasting kingdom. 

Sch. Lord, hear this prayer for Christ our Saviour's sake. 

Sup. Remember, O Lord, the parents of these scholars, and all their 
brothers, sisters, and friends : may they so live together in this life, that in the 
world to come they may have life everlasting. 

Sch. Lord, hear this prayer for Christ our Saviour's sake. 

Sup. Look down, O Father of mercies, on any of those who are dear to us, 
and who are now in trouble, sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity.* 
Send them help and comfort from Thy holy place. 

Sch, Lord, hear this prayer for Christ our Saviour's sake. 

Sup. Have pity, O God, on all children yet living in ignorance and sin ; 
show to them the light of Thy truth, and guide their feet into the way of 
peace. 

Sch. Lord, hear this prayer for Christ our Saviours sake. 

Sup. O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, our only Saviour, the 
Prince of peace : take away from among us whatever may hinder us from godly 

* If any teacher or scholar, bein^ absent by reason of affliction, has sent to beg 
the prayers of the school, then say, "Especially Thy servant the teacher," or 
" Especially A. B." (naming the child), "who now desires our prayers." 
3 



union and concord ; that so we may all be of one heart, and of one soul, and 
may with one mind and one mouth glorify Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Sch, Amen. 

Then shall all sing a hymn, and after that the Superintendent shall say : 

Unto God's gracious mercy and protection we commit you: the Lord bless 
you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious 
unto you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. 

Sch. Amen. 



A shortened Order for Evening Prayer, suitable for Festivals. 



After the singing of a Hymn, the Minister shall read the sentences following ; and 
then shall he say that which is written after the sentences. 

I will arise, and go to my Father, and will say unto Him, Father, I have 
sinned against heaven, and before Thee, and am no more worthy to be called 
Thy son. 

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in 
us; but if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, 
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 

Wiierefoke I pray and beseech you, as many as are here present, to 
accompany me with a pure heart, and humble voice, unto the throne of the 
heavenly grace saying 

A General Confession to be said of the whole Congregation after the Minister, all 
kneeling. 

Almighty and most merciful Father; We have erred, and strayed from 
Thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires 
of our own hearts. We have offended against Thy holy laws. We have left 
undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those 
things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us. But 
Thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. Spare Thou those, O 
God, who confess their faults. Restore Thou those who are penitent ; Accord- 
ing to Thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord. And 
grant, O most merciful Father, for His sake; That we may hereafter live a 
godly, righteous, and sober lite, To the glory of Thy holy Name. Amen. 

The Absolution, or Remission of sins, to be pronounced by the Priest alone, standing ; 
the people still km cling. 

Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who desireth not the 
death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness, and live; 
and hath given power, and commandment, to His Ministers, to declare and 
pronounce to His people, being penitent, the Absolution and Remission of their 
sins: He panloneth and absolveth all those who truly repent, and unfeignedly 
believe His holy Gospel. Wherefore let us beseech Him to grant us true repent- 
ance and His holy Spirit, that those things may please Him which we do at this 
present ; and that the rest of our life hereafter may be pure and holy; so that 
at the last we may come to His eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 
4 



Then the Minister shall kneel, and say the Lord's Prayer with an audible voice; the 
people also kneeling, and repeating it with him. 

Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom 
come. Thy will be done on earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our 
daily bread, And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass 
agaiust us. And lead us not into temptation ; But deliver us from evil : For 
Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

77i*7i shall be sung or said a Psalm or Psalms at the discretion of the Minister, and 
immediately thereafter the Lesson or Lessons shall he read, and one or both of the 
following Canticles sung or said. Lf it be thought desirable to read two Lessons use 
the Canticles one after each Lesson; if one Lesson be read use the Magnificat only. 

MAGNIFICAT. 

B. Luke, I. 46. 

My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my 
Saviour. 

For He hath regarded the lowliness of His handmaiden ; 

For, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. 

For He that is mighty hath magnified me, and holy is His Name. 

And His mercy is on them that fear Him, throughout all generations. 

He hath shewed strength with His arm, He hath scattered the proud in the 
imagination of their hearts. 

He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the hum- 
ble and meek. 

He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He hath sent 
empty away. 

He remembering His mercy, hath holpen His servant Israel, as he prom- 
ised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed forever. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; 

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without 
end. Amen. 

NUNC DIMITTIS. 

S. Like, 11.29. 

Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, according to Thy word : 

For mine eyes have seen Thy salvation, 

Which Thou hast prepared before the face of all people ; 

To be a light to lighten the Gentiles, and to be the glory of Thy people 
Israel. 
6 



Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost ; 
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without 
end. Amen. 

Then shall be said the Apostles' Creed, by the Minister and the People, standing. 

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth : 
And in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the 
Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was 
crucified, dead, and buried ; He descended into Hell ; The third day He rose 
from the dead ; He ascended into Heaven ; And sitteth on the right hand of 
God the Father Almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick 
and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Ghost ; The Holy Catholic Church ; The Communion 
of Saints, The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body; And the 
Life everlasting. Amen.

Then shall be said the Collect for the day, and after that the Collects following. 

A Collect for Peace. 

O God, from whom all holy desires, all good counsels, and all just works do 
proceed; Give unto Thy servants that peace which the world cannot give ; that 
both our hearts may be set to obey Thy commandments, 
and also that by Thee we being defended from the fear 
of our enemies, may pass our time in rest and quietness; 
through the merits of Jesus Christ our Saviour. 



A Collect for Aid against Perils. 

O Lord, our heavenl} 7 Father, by whose Almighty 
power we have been preserved this day ; by Thy great 
mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night, 
for the love of Thy only Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. 



2Cou. xiii. 14. 

THE grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of 
God, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost, be with us 
all evermore.

New every morning is the love 
Our wakening and uprising prove, 
Thro' sleep and darkness safely brought, 
Restored to life, and power, and thought. 

New mercies, each returning day, 
Hover around us while we pray; 
New perils past, new sins forgiven, 
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven. 

If on our daily course, our mind 
Be set to hallow all we find, 



New treasures still, of countless price, 
God will provide for sacrifice. 

The trivial round, the common task, 
Will furnish all we need to ask, 
Room to deny ourselves, a road 
To bring us daily nearer God. 

Oiily, O Lord, in Thy dear love, 
Fit us for perfect rest above; 
And help us, this and every day, 
To live more nearly as we pray.

Lord, I my vows to Thee renew; 
Disperse my sins as morning dew ; 
Guard my first springs of thought and will, 
And with Thyself my spirit fill. 

Direct, control, suggest this day 

All I design, or do, or say; 

That all my powers, with all their might, 

In Thy sole glory may unite. 

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow ; 
Praise Him, all creatures here below; 
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host; 
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. 



Awake, my soul, and with the sun 
Thy "daily stage of duty run; 
Shake oft" dull sloth, and joyful rise 
To pay thy morning sacrifice. 

Awake, lift up thyself, my heart, 
And with the angels bear thy part, 
Who all night long unwearied sing 
Glory to the Eternal King. 

' All praise to Thee, Who safe hast kept 
And hast refreshed me while I slept; 
Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake, 
I may of endless light partake.

Come, my soul, thou must be waking ! 
Now is breaking 
O'er the earth another day: 
Come to Him, Who made this splendor, 
See thou render 
All thy feeble strength can pay. 

Gladly hail the light returning! 
Ready burning 
Be the incense of thy powers : 
For the night is safely ended ; 
God hath tended 
With His care thy helpless hours. 

Pray that He may prosper ever 
Each endeavor, 
When thine aim is good and true; 
But that He may ever thwart thee, 
And convert thee, 
W T hen thou evil would'st pursue. 



Think that He thy ways beholdeth, 

He unfoldeth 

Every fault that lurks within: 

Every stain of shame glossed over 

Can discover, 

And discern each deed of sin. 

Fettered to the fleeting hours, 
All our powers, 
Vain and brief, are borne away : 
Time, my soul, thy ship is steering, 
Onward veering, 
To the gulf of death a prey. 

May'st thou then, on life's last morrow, 
Free from sorrow, 
Pass away in slumber sweet ; 
And released from death's dark sadness, 
Rise in gladness, 
That far brighter Sun to greet!

Jesus, holy, undefiled, 

Listen to a little child ; 

Thou hast sent the glorious light, 

Chasing far the silent night. 

Thou hath sent the sun to shine 
O'er this glorious world of Thine — 
Warmth to give, and pleasant glow, 
On each tender flower below. 

Now the little birds arise, 
Chirping gaily in the skies; 
Thee their tiny voices praise, 
In the early songs they raise. 

Thou, by Whom the birds are fed, 
Give to me my daily bread; 
And Thy Holy Spirit give, 
Without Whom I cannot live. 



Make me, Lord, obedient, mild, 
As becomes a little child; 
All day long, in every way, 
Teach me what to do and say. 

Help me never to forget 
That in Thy great book is set 
All the children think and say, 
For the awful judgment-day. 

Let me never say a word 

That will make Thee angry, Lord; 

Help me so to live in love, 

As Thine angels do above. 

Make me, Lord, in work and play, 
Thine more truly every day; 
And when Thou at last shalt come, 
Take me to Thy heavenly home.

The star of morn has risen; 
O Lord, to Thee we pray : 
O uncreated Light of light, 
Guide Thou our way. 

Sinless be tongue and hand, 
And innocent the mind, 
Let simple truth be on our lips, 
Our hearts be kind. 

Let not the flesh prevail, 
But all be ruled by good; 



The gift of temperance bestow 
In drink and food. 

As the swift day rolls on, 
Still, Lord, our Guardian be, 
And keep the portals of our hearts 
From evil free. 

Grant that our daily toil 
May to Thy glory tend; 
And as our hours begin with Thee, 
So may they end.

Now that the daylight fills the sky, 
We lift our hearts to God on high, 
That He, in all we do or say, 
Would keep us free from harm to-day. 

May He restrain our tongues from strife, 
And shield from anger's din our life, 
And guard with watchful care our eyes 
From earth's absorbing vanities. 

Oh, may our inmost hearts be pure, 
From thoughts of folly kept secure, 



And pride of sinful flesh subdued 
Though sparing use of daily food. 

So we, when this day's work is o'er, 
And shades of night return once more, 
Our path of trial safely trod, 
Shall give the glory to our God. 

All praise to God the Father be, 
All praise, eternal Son, to Thee, 
Whom with the Spirit we adore 
For ever and for evermore.

The dawn of joyous clay again dost bring, 

On our darkened eyes, 

Bid Thy bright beams rise ; 
Of endless glory teach us, Lord, to sing.

Spared our place to fill, 
O Father, be it ours Thy name to bless ; 

Sheltered by Thy power, 

In each fleeting hour, 
Thy children guide to paths of holiness. 



Raised from death-like sleep,

Alive within us thoughts of that great day!

Upheld by strength divine Thy grace sup-

Now while the morning brightens the skies, 
Father ! our praises early shall rise ; 
Smile on Thy children seeking Thy face, 
Give us Thy blessing, fill us with grace. 

Safe hast Thou kept us through the dark night, 
Crowned us with mercies new with the light, 
Health, strength, and reason, clothing and food, 
Father, we thank Thee, loving and good. 

O let Thy favor be our day's sun, 
Shining upon us till it be done, 
Soothing our sorrow, brightening our joy, 
Giving the gladness naught can destroy. 

Thus may Thy presence, all through life's day, 
Guide us and keep us safe on our way, 
Till all its perils ended and past, 
Thou shalt receive us home at the last. 

Home to the mansions peaceful and bright; 
Home to the angels clothed in white; 
Home to the dear ones gone to their rest: 
Home to the Saviour Whom we love best.

The morning, the bright and the beautiful morning 
Is up, and the sunshine is all on the wing; 

With its fresh flush of gladness the landscape adorning, 
A gladness which nothing but morning can bring. 

The earth is awaking : the sky and the ocean, 
The river and forest, the mountain and plain; 

The city is stirring its living commotion; 
The pulse of the world is reviving again. 

And we too awake, for our heavenly Father, 

Who soothed us so gently to sleep on His' breast, 

And made the soft stillness of evening to gather 
Around us, now calls us again from our rest. 

But, ere to our labors and duties returning, 

We hasten to give Him the praise that Ts meet; 

In solemn devotion the first hours of morning 
Our freest and freshest, we lay at His feet. & 

Oh, now let us haste to our heavenly Father, 
And ere the fair skies of life's dawning be dim, 

Let us come with glad hearts, let us come all together; 
The morn of our youth let us hallow to Him.

Oh, help me, Lord, this day to be 
Thy own dear child, and follow Thee; 
And lead me, Saviour, by Thy hand 
Onward toward Thy holy land. 

When Thou didst leave Thy throne on high 
To dwell with men, for men to die, 
All childhood's troubles Thou didst feel, 
That Thou our childish wounds might heal. 

The simple cross which I may bear 
Is not too small for Thee to share, 
And Thou canst make me kind and true 
In everything I say or do. 



Thus lead and teach me that I may 
Grow more like Thee with each new day; 
For Thou, in Thy poor cottage home, 
Wast tried, and Thou didst overcome. 

And help me, more than all, to love 
Thy Father, Lord, and mine above, 
And then, as Thou wouldst have me do, 
Honor my earthly parents too. 

So day by day Thy love shall guide 
Thy child still nearer to Thy side, 
Until in heaven I may be 
For ever Thine, and dwell with Thee.

Now the sun has come, 
Bringing light and glory 

From Thy heavenly home, 
We Thy little children, 

To Thy throne above 
We would hymn Thy praises, 

We would sing Thy love. 
Hear us, holy Father, 

As to Thee we pray, 
Asking Thee to keep us 

Safe from harm to-day. 



As our Saviour Jesus, 

When a little child, 
Gentle was, and holy, 

Pure, and meek, and mild, 
He shall be our copy; 

We will try to be 
Patient and obedient, 

Loving, kind as He 
So, when night returneth, 

Holier may we be, 
Kept from sin and sorrow,

While to Thee my voice I raise, 
In a morning hymn of praise. 
It was Thine almighty arm 
Kept me all night long from harm ; 
It is only, Lord, by Thee, 
That another morn I see. 
Lo, the happy light of day 
Drives the shadows all away ! 
Lo, it brings again to sight 
All things beautiful and bright.

Make me loving, gentle, mild.

It is not night if Thou be near; 
O may no earth-born cloud arise 
To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes. 

When the soft dews of kindly sleep 
My wearied eyelids gently steep, 
Be my last thought, how sweet to rest 
For ever on my Saviour's breast. 

Abide with me from morn till eve, 
For without Thee I cannot live ; 
Abide with me when night is nigh, 
For without Thee I dare not die. 



If some poor wandering child of Thine 
Have spurned to-day the voice divine, 
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin; 
Let him no more lie down in sin. 

Watch by the sick ; enrich the poor 
With blessings from Thy boundless store; 
Be every mourner's sleep to-night, 
Like infant's slumbers, pure and light. 

Come near and bless us when we wake, 
Ere through the world our way we take; 
Till in the ocean of Thy love 
We lose ourselves in heaven above.

Father, while the shadows fall, 
With the twilight, over all, 
Deign to hear my evening prayer, 
Make a little child Thy care. 



Take me in Thy holy keeping 
Till the morning break; 

Guard me through the darkness 
sleeping, 
Bless me when I wake. 



Twas Thy hand that all the day 
Scattered joys along my way, 
Crowned my life with blessings sweet, 
Kept from snares my careless feet. 
Take me, Sec. 

Like Thy patient love to me, 
May my love to others be; 
All the wrong my hands have done, 
Pardon, Lord, through Christ, Thy Son. 
Take me, &c.

The hours of day are over, 

The evening calls us home; 
Once more to Thee, O Father, 

With thankful hearts we come; 
For all Thy countless blessings 

We praise Thy holy Name, 
And own Thy love unchanging, 

Through days and years the same. 



For life, and health, and shelter, 

From harm throughout the day, 
The kindness of our teachers, 

The gladness of our play; 
For all the dear affection 

Of parents, brothers, friends, 
To Thee our thanks we render, 

Who these, and all things, sends. 



But these, O Lord, can show us 

Thy goodness but in part ; 
Thy love would lead us onward 

To know Thee as Thou art; 
Thy Son came down from Heaven 

To take away our sin, 
Thy Spirit dwells among us 

To make us clean within. 

For this, O Lord, we bless Thee, 
P\)r this we thank Thee most — 

The cleansing of the sinful, 
The saving of the lost; 



The Teacher ever present, 
The Friend for ever nigh, 

The home prepared by Jesus 
For us beyond the sky. 

Lord, gather all Thy children 
To meet Thee there at last, 

When earthly tasks are ended, 
And earthly days are past; 

With all our dear ones round us 
In that eternal home, 

Where death no more shall part us, 

' And night shall never come !

Through the day Thy love has spared us; 

Now we lay us down to rest; 
Through the silent watches guard us; 
Let no foe our peace molest ; 
Jesus, Thou our Guardian be; 
Sweet it is to trust in Thee. 



Pilgrims here on earth and strangers, 

Dwelling in the midst of foes, 
Us and ours preserve from dangers; 
In Thine arms may we repose, 
And, when life's brief day is past, 
Rest with Thee in heaven at last.

Now the day is over, 

Night is drawing nigh, 
Shadows of the evening 

Steal across the sky. 
Now the darkness gathers; 

Stars begin to peep; 
Birds and beasts and flowers 

Soon will be asleep. 

Jesus, grant the weary 

Calm and sweet repose; 
With Thy tenderest blessing 

May our eyelids close. 
Grant to little children 

Visions bright of Thee; 
Guard the sailors tossing 

On the deep blue sea. 



Comfort every sufferer 

Watching late in pain; 
Those who plan some evil 

From their sin restrain. 
Through the long night watches 

May Thine angels spread 
Their white wings above me, 

Standing round my bed. 

When the morning wakens, 

Then may I arise 
Pure and fresh and sinless 

In Thy holy eyes. 
Glory to the leather, 

Glory to the Son, 
And to the blest Spirit 

Whilst all ages run.

By Thine anguish on the tree, 

By Thy precious gift of pardon, 
Won for us alone by Thee ! 

Blessed Jesus, 
Set the sin-bound captives free.

And the night grows still and deep, 

Let us, in Thine arms reposing, 
Feel Thy power to save and keep : 

Blessed Jesus, 
Give Thine own beloved sleep.

Alleluia! fairest morning! 

Fairer than our words can say! 
Down we lay the heavy burden 

Of life's toil and care today; 
While this morn of joy and love 
Brings fresh vigor from above. 

Sun-day, full of holy glory ! 

Sweetest rest-day of the soul ! 
Light upon a world of darkness 

From thy blessed moments roll ! 
Holy, happy, heavenly day, 
Thou canst charm our grief away.

Of the grace for which we pray, 
When the word of life is given, 
Like the Saviour's voice from heaven. 

Let the day with Thee be ended, 
As with Thee it has begun ; 

And Thy blessing, Lord, be granted, 
Till earth's days and weeks are done; 

That at last Thy servants may 

Keep eternal sabbath-day.

God the Father's name we praise; 
Who, creation's Lord and spring, 
Did the world from darkness bring. 

On this day the eternal Son 
Over death His triumph won; 
On this day the Spirit came 
With Flis gifts of living flame. 

Oh, that fervent love to-day 
May in every heart have sway, 
Teaching us to praise aright 
God, the Source of life and light! 



Father, Who didst fashion me 
Image of Thyself to be, 
Fill me with Thy love divine, 
Let my every thought be Thine. 

Thou Who dost all gifts impart 
Shine, sweet Spirit, in my heart; 
Best of gifts, Thyself bestow, 
Make me burn Thy*love to know. 

God, the blessed Three in One, 
Dwell within my heart alone; 
Thou dost give Thyself to me, 
May I give myself to Thee.

O day of rest and gladness, 

O day of joy and light, 
O balm of care and sadness, 

Most beautiful, most bright; 
On thee the high and lowly, 

Through ages joined in tune, 
Sing, Holy, Holy, Holy, 

To the great God Triune. 



On thee, at the creation, 

The light had first its birth; 
On thee, for our salvation, 

Christ rose from depths of earth ; 
On thee, our Lord victorious 

The spirit sent from heaven; 
And thus on thee most glorious, 

A triple light was given. 



Thou art a port protected 

From storms that round us rise; 
A garden intersected 

With streams of paradise; . 
Thou art a cooling fountain 

In life's dry dreary sand : 
From Thee, like Pisgah's mountain, 

We view the promised land. 

Thou art a holy ladder 

Where angels go and come; 
Each sunday finds a gladder, 

Nearer to heaven, our homj£ : 
A day of sweet refection 

Thou art, a day of love; 
A day of resurrection 

From earth to things above. 



To-day on weary nations 

The heavenly manna falls; 
To holy convocations 

The silver trumpet calls; 
Where gospel-light is glowing 

With pure and radiant beams, 
And living water flowing 

With soul-refreshing streams. 

New graces ever gaining 

From this, our day of rest, 
We each the rest remaining, 

To spirits of the blest. 
To Holy Ghost be praises, 

To Father and to Son ; 
The Church her voice upraises 

To Thee, blest Three in One.

On weary brain and troubled breast 
Shed Thou Thy freshening dew. 

This is the day of peace: 
Thy peace our spirits fill ; 



Bid Thou the blasts of discord cease, 
The waves of strife be still. 

This is the day of prayer: 

Let earth to heaven draw near; 

Lift up our hearts to seek Thee there, 
Come down to meet us lure. 

This is the first of days: 

Send forth Thy quickening breath, 
And wake dead souls to love and praise, 

O vanquisher of death.

Again the morn of gladness, 

The morn of light, is here; 
And earth itself looks fairer, 

And heaven itself more near: 
The bells, like angel voices, 

Speak peace to every breast; 
And all the land lies quiet 

To keep the day of rest. 

Glory be to Jesus, 

Let all His children say; 
He rose again, He rose again, 

On this glad day ! 

Again, O loving Saviour, 

The children of Thy grace 
Prepare themselves to seek Thee 

Within Thy chosen place: 
Our song shall rise to greet Thee, 

If Thou our hearts wilt raise; 
If Thou our lips wilt open, 

Our mouth shall show Thy praise. 
Glory be, &c. 

The shining choir of angels 
That rest not day nor night, 



The crowned and palm-decked martyrs, 
The saints arrayed in white, 

The happy lambs of Jesus 
In pastures fair above, 

These all adore and praise Him 
Whom we, too, praise and love. 
Glory be, &c. 

The Church on earth rejoices 

To join with these to-day; 
In every tongue and nation 

She calls her sons to pray : 
Across the northern snow-fields, 

Beneath the Indian palms, 
She makes the same "pure offering," 

And sings the same sweet psalms. 
Glory be, &c. 

Tell out, sweet bells, His praises! 

Sing, children, sing His Name! 
Still louder and still further 

His mighty deeds proclaim! 
Till all whom He redeemed 

Shall own Him Lord, and King; 
Till every knee shall worship, 

And every tongue shall sing — 
Glory be, &c.

O HOLY Sabbath day ! 

Full of the purest bliss! 
What treasure on life's way 

Find we so fair as this? 
Thou wert to God a rest, 

Thou art a rest to man ; 
And they who know thee best 

Hallow thee all they can. 

Like little isles of heaven 

Scattered through life's rough sea, 
All round about storm-driven, 

All calm and still on thee. 
Like Eden-spots on earth, 

Where curse hath never been, 
Which dews of heavenly birth 

Keep ever pure and green. 



Sweet day of holy calm, 

With lieavenly sunshine bright! 
Whose very air is balm 

To those who use thee right. 
The world is hushed— the din 

Of work-day life is o'er, 
The sights and sounds of sin 

Distract the sense no more. 

We hear the blessed Word, 

We bend our knees and pray, 
Our inmost souls are stirred, 

We tremble and obey. 
O how such days help on 

Along the heavenly road, 
Steps upward — one by one — 

Into the rest of God!

No repose on earth around,

Till they reach Thy throne at length, 
At Thy feet adoring fall, 
Who hast led them safe through all. 

Lord, be mine this prize to win, 
Guide me through a world of sin, 
Keep me by Thy saving grace, 
Give me at Thy side a place.

Heavenly Father, send Thy blessing, 

On Thy children gathered here, 
May we all, Thy name confessing, 

Be to Thee for ever dear. 
May we be like Joseph, loving, 

Dutiful, and chaste, and pure, 
And our faith, like David, proving, 

Steadfast unto death endure. 



Holy Saviour, Who in meekness 

Didst vouchsafe a child to be, 
Guide our steps and help our weakness, 

Bless and make us like to Thee. 
Bear Thy lambs, when they are weary, 

In Thine arms and at Thy breast; 
Through life's desert, dry and dreary, 

Bring us to Thy heavenly rest. 



No. 43. 



Spread Thy golden pinions o'er us, 

Holy Spirit, Heavenly Dove; 
Guide us, lead us, go before us, 

Give us peace, and joy, and love. 
Temples of the Holy Spirit, 

May we with Thy glory shine, 
And immortal bliss inherit, 

And for evermore be Thine.

Saviour, now the day is ending, 
And the shades of evening fall; 

Let the Holy Ghost, descending, 
Bring Thy mercy to us all. 

Set Thy seal on every heart, 

Jesus ! bless us ere we part. 

Bless the Gospel-message, spoken 
In Thine own appointed way; 

Give each longing soul a token 
Of Thy tender love to-day. 

Set Thy soul on every heart, 

Jesus! bless us ere we part. 



Comfort those in pain and sorrow, 
Watch each sleeping child of Thine; 

Let us all arise to-morrow 

Strengthened by Thy grace Divine; 

Set Thy seal on every heart, 

Jesus! bless us ere we part. 

Pardon Thou each deed unholy, 
Lord, forgive each sinful thought; 

Make us contrite, pure, and lowly, 
By Thy great example taught : 

Set Thy seal on every heart, 

Jesus! bless us ere we part.

Saviour, again to Thy dear Name we raise 
With one accord our parting hymn of praise; 

We stand to bless Thee ere our worship cease, 
Then, lowly kneeling, wait Thy word of peace. 



Grant us Thy peace upon our homeward way ; 

With Thee begun, with Thee shall end the day; 
Guard Thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame, 

That in this house have called upon Thy Name. 

Grant us Thy peace, Lord, through the coming night, 
Turn Thou for us its darkness into light; 

From harm and danger keep Thy children free, 
For dark and light are both alike to Thee. 

Grant us Thy peace throughout our earthly life, 
Our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife; 

Then, when Thy voice shall bid our conflict cease, 
Call us, O Lord, to Thine eternal peace. 



LUTETIA, 



C. M. 




I I 








The Lord be with us as we bend 

His blessing to receive; 
His gift of peace upon us send, 

Before His courts we leave. 

The Lord be with us as we walk 

Along our homeward road; 
In silent thought or friendly talk 

Our hearts be still with God. 

The Lord be with us till the night 

Enfold our day of rest; 
Be He of every heart the Light, 

Of every home the Guest. 

And when our nightly prayers we say, 
His watch lie still shall keep, 

Crown with His grace His own blest day, 
And guard His people's sleep.

And now this holy day 

Is drawing to its end, 
Once more, to Thee, O Lord, 

Our thanks and prayers we send. 

We thank Thee for this rest 
From earthly care and strife; 

We thank Thee for this help 
To higher, holier life. 

We thank Thee for Thy house; 

It is Thy palace gate, 
Where Thou, upon Thy throne 

Of mercy, still dost wait. 

We thank Thee for Thy word, 
Thy gospel's joyful sound; 



Oh, may its holy fruits 

Within our hearts abound ! 

Yet ere we go to rest, 
Father, to Thee we pray, 

Forgive the sins which stain 
E'en this Thy holy day. 

Through Jesus let the past 
Be blotted from Thy sight; 

And let us all now sleep 

At peace with Thee this night 

To God the Father, Son, 

And Spirit, glory be, 
From all in earth and Heaven, 

Through all eternity.

At Thy feet we bow the knee.

Watch my sleep till morning light.

Lo ! He comes with clouds descending, 
Once for the favored sinners slain; 

Thousand thousand saints attending 
Swell the triumph of His train: 
Alleluia! 

Christ appears on earth again. 

Every eye shall now behold Him 
Robed in dreadful majesty; 

They who set at naught and sold Him, 
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree, 
Deeply wailing, 

Shall the true Messiah see. 



Those dear tokens of His passion 
Still His dazzling body bears, 

Cause of endless exultation 

To His ransomed worshippers; 
With what rapture 

Gaze we on those glorious scars! 

Yea, Amen, let all adore Thee, 

High on Thine eternal throne; 
Saviour, take the power and glory; 

Claim the kingdom fur Thine own:

Thou shalt reign, and Thou alone.

Hosanna ! they were crying 
When Jesus lived below, 

Those little Jewish children 
Who loved the Saviour so. 

Hosanna, now through Advent, 
With loving hearts we sing, 

For Jesus Christ is coming 
To be His children's King. 

Hosanna! blessed Jesus; 

Come, in our hearts to dwell, 
And let our lives and voices 

Thy praise and glory tell. 



For we who sing Hosanna, 
Must like our Saviour be, 

In gentleness and meekness, 
In love and purity. 

Hosanna, let this welcome 
Ring out from every heart ; 

Draw nigh to us, ( ) Jesus, 
And never more depart. 

So when we see Thee coming 
With angels in the sky, 

Hosanna! loud Hosanna ! 
Shall be Thy children's cry.

Hark the glad sound ! the Saviour comes, 

The Saviour promised long; 
Let every heart prepare a throne. 

And every voice a song. 

He comes, the prisoners to release 

In Satan's bondage held: 
The gates of brass before Him burst, 

The iron fetters yield. 



He comes, the broken heart to bind, 
The bleeding soul to cure, 

And with the treasures of His grace 
To bless the humble poor. 

Our glad Hosanna, Prince of peace, 
Thy welcome shall proclaim ; 

And Heaven's eternal archs ring 
With Thy beloved Name.

Calm on the listening ear of night 
Come heaven's melodious strains, 

Where wild Judea stretches far 
Her silver-mantled plains. 

Celestial choirs, from courts above, 

Shed sacred glories there; 
And angels, with their sparkling lyres, 

Make music on the air. 

The answering hills of Palestine 

Send back the glad reply ; 
And greet, from all their holy heights, 

The Dayspring from on high.

There comes a holier calm, 
And Sharon waves, in solemn praise, 

Her silent groves of palm. 

" Glory to God ! " the sounding skies 
Loud with their anthems ring, 

"Peace to the earth, good-will to men, 
From heaven's eternal King! " 

Light on thy hills, Jerusalem ! 

The Saviour now is born! 
And bright on Bethlehem's joyous plains 

Breaks the first Christmas morn.

Open fly the gates of heaven, 

Downward sweeps the angel throng; 
Unto us a Son is given, 

Let us welcome Him with song: 
Lift up hearts and voices, 
Let the welcome ring, 
For Christmas, happy Christmas, 
Is the birthday of the King. 
Shepherds through the night abiding, 

Watchful of their flocks afield, 
Saw the glory earthward gliding, 

Heard the joyful news revealed. 
On to David's city hieing, 

As their angel-guide had said, 
There they found the Baby, lying 
In a manger for His bed. — Cho. 



Then the Shepherds told their story, 

All that they had seen and heard ; 
How the angels sang God's glory, 

And of peace on earth brought word. — Cho. 
So it happ'd long since in Jewry, 

On the night when Christ was born, — 
Christ, Whose people in their fury 

Crown'd Him afterward with thorn. — Cho. 
Let us all with joyful greeting 

Give Him welcome while we may, 
So our happiness completing, 

He shall be our Guest to-day. — Cho. 
Open fly the gates of heaven, 

Downward sweeps the angel throng ; 
Unto us a Son is given, 

Let us welcome Him with song:— Cho.

Once in royal David's city 

Stood a lowly cattle shed, 
Where a mother laid her Baby 

In a manger for His bed: 
Mary was that mother mild, 
Jesus Christ her little Child. 

He came down to earth from heaven 
Who is God and Lord of all, 

And H is shelter was a stable, 
And His cradle was a stall ; 

With the poor, and mean, and lowly, 

Lived on earth our Saviour holy. 

And, through all His wondrous childhood, 

He would honor and obey, 
Love and watch the lowly maiden 

In whose gentle arms He lay; 
Christian children all must be 
Mild, obedient, good as He. 



For He is our childhood's pattern, 
Day by day like us He grew, 

He was little, weak, and helpless, 
Tears and smiles like us lie knew, 

And He feeleth for our sadness, 

And He shareth in our gladness. 

And our eyes at last shall see Him, 
Through His own redeeming love, 

For that Child, so dear and gentle, 
Is our Lord in heaven above; 

And He leads His children on 

To the place where He is gone. 

Not in that poor lowly stable, 
Wiih the oxen standing by, 

We shall see Him : hut in heaven, 
Set at God's right hand on high ; 

When like stars His children crowned, 

All in white shall wait around.

While the shepherds kept their vigil, 
And the world in darkness lay, 

Came the holy Advent-angel, 
Shone the sudden glory-ray; 

Then, ten thousand times ten thousand, 
Radiant heralds of the day. 

Thus they sang the first sweet carol, 

" Glory be to God on high, 
And on earth be peace and blessing 

To the nations far and nigh ! " 
So our God made good His promise, 

And the old prophetic cry. 

Fuller, farther, o'er the wide world, 
Year by year that music swells; 

Year by year to some new people 
Christmas-tide the story tells, 

"With the chanting of the children, 
And the pealing of the bells. 



Louder over hill and valley 

Let the towers and steeples ring! 

In the hamlet and the city 
Sweeter carols let us sing — 

Louder peals of holy pleasure, 
Sweeter carols to our King! 

Hear Thy children, blessed Jesus, 
Once for us on earth a Child ; 

Keep us in Thy great compassion 
Holy, harmless, undefilcd; 

Blessed through Thee by God the Spirit, 
To the Father reconciled. 

Still we wait for Thine appearing, 
() Thou bright and Morning Star! 

Still we look to hear the rolling 
Of Thy great triumphal car; 

We, who sing Thy iirst glad Adve it. 
Know Thy second is not far.

'Neath the stars that shone so bright 

Shepherds watched their flocks by night ; | 

Suddenly, in glorious guise, 

Came an angel from the skies, 

Stood beside them, did not chide them, 

Told the tidings glad and free, 

"Christ Incarnate deigns to be." 

Born this day of David's line, 
Now behold the Babe Divine; 
Rude the raiment that enfolds Him, 
Rough the manger bed that holds Him; 



Lord all holy, laid so lowly, 

Who from highest realms of heaven 

wStoops that man may be forgiven. 

May we all with heart and voice 
Still with Bethlehem rejoice, 
Thither by the bright star led 
To the House of Living Bread; 
Chant the story of His glory- 
Till His Majesty we see 
At His last Epiphany.

It came upon the midnight clear — 

That glorious song of old, 
From Angels bending near the earth 

To touch their harps of gold, 
"Peace on the earth, good-will to men 

From Heaven's all-gracious King." 
The world in solemn stillness lay 

To hear the Angels sing. 



Still through the cloven skies they come 

With peaceful wings unfurled; 
And still their heavenly music floats 

O'er all the weary world; 
Above its sad and lowly plains 

They bend on heavenly wing, 
And ever o'er its Babel-sounds 

The blessed Angels sing. 



Yet with the woes of sin and strife 

The world has suffered long; 
Beneath the angel-strain have rolled 

Two thousand years of wrong; 
And men, at war with men, hear not 

The words of peace they bring: — 
Oh, listen now, ye men of strife, 

And hear the Angels sing! 



O Prince of Peace, Thou knowest well 

This weary world below; 
Thou se[ : st how men climb the way 

With painful steps and slow. 
Oh, still the jarring sounds of earth 

That round the pathway ring, 
And bid the toilers re^t awhile 

To hear the Angels sing !

Gifts He asketh richer, 
Offerings costlier still, 

Yet may Christian children 
•Bring them if they will. 

Brighter than all jewels 
Shines the modest eye; 

Best of gifts He loveth 
Childlike purity. 

Haste we then to welcome, 
With a joyous lay, 

Christ the King of Glory, 
Manifest to-day. 






Waken, Christian children, 

Up! and let us sing 
With glad voice the praises 

Of our new-born King. 

In a manger lowly 

Sleeps the Heavenly Child, 
O'er Him fondly bendeth 

Mary, mother mild. 

Fear not then to enter, 
Though we cannot bring 

Gold, or myrrh, or incense, 
Fitting for a King.

Ring, ring the bells, the joyful bells, 

This merry Christmas morn! 
Their sweet, melodious music tells 

The day that Christ was born. 
Sweetly they sound o'er vale and glen; 

Hark! how their music swells 
With " Peace on earth, good will to men!'* 

O merry Christmas bells! 
Ring, ring the bells, the Christmas bells, 
The bells, the merry, merry Christmas 

bells; 
Ring, ring the merry Christmas bells! 
Ring, ring the bells, the Christmas bells! 

For in their joyous chime 



Once more on earth the chorus swells 

Of angel song sublime. 
The sweet old story, ever new, 

Falls on the heart again, 
Refreshing as the early dew, 

Or the soft summer rain. Ring, ring, &c. 
Ring, ring the bells, the Christmas bells, 

Prophetic of the day 
When He of whom their music tells 

Shall all the nations sway; 
Shall bless and fill and rule each heart, 

Shall bid all sorrows cease, 
And give His own the better part 

Of everlasting peace. Ring, ring, &c.

While shepherds watched their flocks by 

All seated on the ground, [night, 

The Angel of the Lord come down, 

And glory shone around. 
"Fear not," said he, for mighty dread 

Had seized their troubled mind; 
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring 

To you and all mankind. 
"To you, in David's town this day 

Is born, of David's line, 
The Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, 

And this shall be the sign : 



i 
The heavenly Babe you there shall find 

To human view displayed. 
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands, 

And in a manger laid.'' 
Thus spake the seraph; and forthwith 

Appeared a shining throng 
Of Angels, praising God, who thus 

Addressed their joyful song: 
" All glory be to God on high, 

And to the earth be peace; 
Good-will henceforth from heaven to men 

ISegin, and never cease."

Standing at the portal of the opening year, 
Words of comfort meet us, hushing every fear; 
Spoken through the silence by our Father's Voice, 
Tender, strong, and faithful, making us rejoice. 

Onward then, and fear not, children of the day! 

For His Word shall never, never pass away! 

I, the Lord, am with thee, be thou not afraid, 
I will help and strengthen, be thou not dismayed! 
Yea, I will uphold thee with My own Right Hand, 
Thou art called and chosen in My sight to stand. 
Onward then, &c. 

For the year before us, oh, what rich supplies! 
For the poor and needy living streams shall rise; 
For the sad and sinful shall His grace abound; 
For the faint and feeble perfect strength be found. 
Onward then, &c. 

He will never fail us, He will not forsake; 
Flis eternal covenant He will never break. 
Resting on His promise, what have we to fear? 
God is all-sufficient for the coming year. 
Onward then, &c.

For Thine innocents we raise,

Slain by Herod's cruel hand. 

First to follow Thee, the Lamb, 
Triumphing with crown and palm,

Pain and grief for them are o'er.

Praise Thy Name, and work Thy WilL 

With their anthems. Lord, we sing,

Father, let me dedicate 

All this year to Thee, 
In whatever worldly state 

Thou wilt have me be: 
Not from sorrow, pain, or care 

Freedom dare I claim; 
This alone shall be my prayer, 

•'Glorify Thy Name." 

Can a child presume to choose 

Where or how to live? 
Can a Father's love refuse 

All the best to give? 
More Thou givest every day 

Than the best can claim, 
Nor witholdest aught that may 

''Glorify Thy name." 



If in mercy Thou wilt spare 

Joys that yet are mine; 
If on life, serene and fair, 

Brighter rays may shine; 
Let my glad heart, while it sings, 

Thee in all proclaim, 
And, whate'er the future brings, 

"Glorify Thy Name." 

If Thou callest to the cross, 

And its shadow come, 
Turning all my gain to loss, 

Shrouding heart and home, 
Let me think how Thy dear Son 

To His glory came, 
And in deepest woe pray on, 

" Glorify Thy Name."

Costly gifts, and offerings, royal — 

Precious gold we cannot bring — 
Yet we would not be disloyal 

Unto Thee, our Saviour King. 
Christmas joy each soul is filling, . 

Shines Thy cross upon each brow, 
For Thy service, eager, willing, 

Enter we Thy Presence now. 

Holy, loving in behavior. 

We would on Thy birthday be; 

From Thine own great feast, O Saviour, 
Dare we not to banish Thee. 






Oh, dispel each thought of sadness 
At our happy Christmas feast; 

Hallow all our mirth and gladness; 
Enter in and be our Guest. 

While we humbly would adore Thee 

Pending lowly at Thy throne — 
Pirthday gifts we lay before Thee, 

Loving hearts to be Thine own. 
So of all our choicest giving 

To our King and Saviour dear, 
We will make life worth the living, 

Crowning thus the glad New Year.

Brightest and best of the sons of the morning! 

Dawn on our darkness, and lend us Thine aid; 
Star of the East! the horizon adorning, 

Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid. 

Cold on His cradle the dew-drops are shining; 

Low lies His bed with the beasts of the stall: 
Angels adore Him, in slumber reclining, 

Maker, and Monarch, and Saviour of all. 

Say, shall we yield Him, in costly devotion, 
Odors of Edom and off 'rings divine, 

Gems of the mountain, and pearls of the ocean, 
Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine? 

Vainly we offer each ample oblation; 

Vainly with gifts would His favor secure; 
Richer by far is the heart's adoration, 

Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor. 

Brightest and best of the sons of the morning ! 

Dawn on our darkness, and lend us Thine aid; 
Star of the East! the horizon adorning, 

Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.

From the eastern mountains, 

Pressing on they come, 
Wise men in their wisdom, 

To His humble home; 
Stirred by deep devotion, 

Hasting from afar, 
Ever journeying onward, 

Guided by a star. 

There their Lord and Saviour 

Meek and lowly lay, 
Wondrous light that led them 

Onward on their way; 
Ever now to lighten 

Nations from afar, 
As they journey homeward 

By that guiding star. 

Thou Who in a manger 
Once hast lowly lain, 

Who dost now in glory 
O'er all kingdoms reign, 



Gather in the heathen, 

Who in lands afar 
Ne'er have seen the brightness 

Of Thy guiding star. 

Gather in the outcasts, 

All who go astray, 
Throw Thy radiance o'er them 

Guide them on their fray; 
Those who never knew Thee, 

Those who wander far, 
Guide them by the brightness 

Of Thy guiding star. 

Until every nation, 

Whether bond or free, 
'Neath Thy starlit banner, 

Jesus, follows Thee 
O'er the distant mountains, 

To that heavenly home, 
Where no sin nor sorrow 

Evermore shall come.

Lo ! the pilgrim Magi 

Leave thei'r royal halls, 
And with love devoutest 

Speed to Bethlehem's walls; 
As they onward journey 

Faith, which firmly rests 
Built on hope unswerving, 

Triumphs in their breasts. 



O what joy ecstatic 

Thrilled each heart from far, 
When to guide their footsteps 

Gleamed the beacon Star, 
O'er that home so holy 

Pouring down its ray 
In His Mother's bosom 

Where the infant lay. 



There no ivory glistens, 

Glows no regal gold, 
Nor does gorgeous purple 

Those fair limbs enfold; 
But His court He keepeth 

In a stable bare, 
His throne is a manger, 

Rags His purple are. 

At His crib they worship 
Prostrate on the floor; 

And a God there present 
In that Babe adore; 



Let us to that infant, 
We, their offspring, true 

Hearts with love o'erflowing, 
Give our tribute due. 

Holiest love presenting 

As gold to our King; 
To the Man pure bodies 

Myrrh-like chastely bring 
Unto Him as incense 

Vow and prayer address; 
So with offering meetest 

This our God confess.

Lord, Thy mercy now entreating, 
Low before Thy throne we fall, 

Our misdeeds to Thee confessing, 
On Thy Name we humbly call. 

Sinful thoughts, and words unloving, 
Rise against us one by one; 

Acts unworthy, deeds unthinking, 
Good that we have left undone : 

Hearts that far from Thee were straying, 
While in prayer we bowed the knee ; 

Lips that, while Thy praises sounding, 
Lifted not the voice to Thee : 



Precious moments idly wasted, 
Precious hours in folly spent; 

Christian vow and fight unheeded, 
Scarce a thought to wisdom lent: 

Lord, Thy mercy still entreating, 
We with shame our sins would own ; 

From henceforth, the time redeeming, 
May we live to Thee alone. 

Heavenly Father, bless Thy children; 

Hearken from Thy Throne on high; 
Loving Saviour, Holy Spirit, 

Hear and heed our humble cry

Such as minrstered to Thee.

As Thou with Satan didst contend, 

And didst the victory win; 
Oh, give us strength in Thee to fight, 

In Thee to conquer sin. 

As Thou didst hunger bear and thirst, 
So teach us, gracious Lord, 



To die to self, and chiefly live 
By Thy most holy Word. 

And through these days of penitence, 
And through Thy Passiontide, 

Yea, evermore, in life and death, 
Jesus, with us abide. 

Abide with us, that so, this life 

Of suffering overpast, 
An Easter of unending joy 

We may attain at last.

Our solemn Lent has come again, 

A time for fast and prayer, 
For all who, tempted like their Lord, 

His victory would share. 
Fast crowding on our childish hearts 

Come mournful thoughts of Thee, 
Thoughts of Thy loneliness and pain, 

Thy want, Thy misery. 



And bitter thoughts of all the sin 

That brought our Lord so low, 
When in the awful wilderness 

He battled with our foe. 
Those wicked tempers that arise, 

Those words and deeds of ill, 
Oh, how they pressed upon Him then, 

Oh, how they grieve Him still! 



Jesus, our Saviour, can it be 

That we should see Thee there, 
See Thee in all that bitter grief, 

Without a thought or care ? 
No; let us rather daily strive 

Against besetting sin, 
And look to Thee our conquering Lord, 

New victories to win. 



The strength that made Thee triumph then, 

The patience and the power, 
The all-prevailing grace and love, 

That brought Thee through that hour; 
These Thou dost promise unto us, 

Whom Thou hast loved so well; 
We triumph in Thy victory won, 

Thy conquest over hell.

Lord, Who hast made me Thy dear child, 

And loved me tenderly, 
Oh, hear me when I come to own 

My many faults to Thee! 

How often I have thought that I 

A better child would be, 
More gentle, loving, kind, and true, 

And pleasing unto Thee. 



And yet I have not conquered sin, 

Nor striven as I should ; 
I have - not always looked to Thee 

When trying to be good. 

Yet turn not from me, dearest Lord, 

But all my faults forgive; 
And grant that I may love Thee more 

Each day on earth I live. 



No. 86. 

And didst Thou hunger then, O Lord, 
And thirst for such as we? 

And in the lonely wilderness 
Did none Thine anguish see? 

Ah! who can tell the sufferings 

Of those long forty days? 
We kneel in silence to adore, 

We may not dare to gaze. 

We only know the strife was great 
The conflict fierce and sore, 



And few the words that Jesus spake, 
For us to ponder o'er. 

For love of us He would not heed 

The tempter at His side; 
"Man shall not live by bread alone," 

The Holy One replied. 

"Man shall not live by bread alone;" 
Then grant us grace, dear Lord, 

That we through this life's wilderness 
May feed upon Thy word.

Hosanna! loud hosanna! 

The little children sang; 
Through pillared court and temple 

The glorious anthem rang; 
To Jesus who had blessed them, 

Close folded to His breast, 
The children sang their praises, 

The simplest and the best. 

From Olivet they followed, 

'Midst an exultant crowd, 
Waving the victor palm branch, 

And shouting clear and loud; 
Bright angels joined the chorus 

Beyond the cloudless sky, 
" Hosanna in the hightest! 

Glory to God on high!" 



Fair leaves of silvery olive 

They strewed upon the ground, 
Whilst Salem's circling mountains 

Echoed the joyful sound; 
The Lord of men and angels 

Rode on in lowly state, 
Nor scorned that little children 

Should on His bidding wait. 



"Hosanna in the highest!" 

That ancient song we sing: 
For Christ is our Redeemer, 

The Lord of heaven our King; 
O! may we ever praise Him 

With heart and life and voice,' 
And in 1 1 is blissful presence, 

Eternally rejoice!

When, His salvation bringing, 

To Zion Jesus came, 
The children all stood singing 

Hosanna to His Name; 
Nor did their zeal offend Him, 

But as He rode along 
He let them still attend Him, 

And listened to their song. 

And since the Lord retaineth 
His love for children still, 

Though now as king He reigneth 
On Zion's heavenly hill, 



We'll flock around His banner 
Who sits upon the Throne, 

And cry aloud Hosanna 
To David's royal Son. 

For should we fail proclaiming 

Our great Redeemer's praise, 
The stones, our silence shaming, 

Would their hosannas raise. 
But shall we only render 

The tribute of our words? 
No: while our hearts are tender 

They, too, shall be the Lord's,

Beyond the holy city wall 
They set the cruel cross on high, 
Where the dear Lord, Who saved us all, 
Did hang in pain, and bleed, and die. 

The hands that touched the blind to sight, 
That gave the sick man strength anew, 
That raised the dead to life and light, 
Were pierced and wounded through and 
through. 

The feet that walked the stormy sea, 
That ever turned at sorrow's prayer, 
By sharp nails fastened to the tree, 
Hung torn and hurt and bleeding there. 



Since God's own Son must suffer thus, 
Our souls from Satan's grasp to win; 
Since only He could ransom us, 
Oh, what a fearful thing is sin ? 

How can we yield to Satan's power, 
And let our sinful passions reign, 
When hearing of that awful hour, 
And thinking of our Saviour's pain ? 

Oh, by Thy griefs that dreadful day, 
Dear Lord, and by Thy precious blood, 
Wash all our guilty stains away, 
And make Thy sinful children good!

Glory be to Jesus, 
Who, in bitter pains, 

Poured for me the life-blood 
From His sacred veins. 

Grace and life eternal 
In that blood I find; 

Blest be His compassion, 
Infinitely kind. 

Blest through endless ages 
Be the precious stream. 

Which from endless torments 
Did the world redeem. 

Abel's blood for vengeance 
Pleaded to the skies; 



But the blood of Jesus 
For our pardon cries. 

Oft as it is sprinkled 
On our guilty hearts, 

Satan in confusion 

Terror-struck departs; 

Oft as earth exulting 

Wafts its praise on high, 

Angel hosts rejoicing 
Make their glad reply. 

Lift ye then your voices; 

Swell the mighty flood; 
Louder still and-louder 

Praise the precious blood. 



Weeping, as they go their way 
Their dear Lord in earth to lay, 
Late at even — who are they ? 

These are they who watched to see 
Where He hung in agony, 
Dying on the accursed tree. 

All is over — in the tomb 

Sleeps He, as in death's dark womb, 

Till the dawn of Easter come. 



All is over — fought the fight; 

Heaviness is for the night, 

Joy comes with the morning light. 

Leave we in the grave with Him 
Sins that shame and doubts that dim, 
If our souls would rise with Him. 

Glory to the Lord, who gave 
His pure body to the grave, 
Us from sin and death to save.

There is a green hill far away, 

Without a city wall, 
Where the dear Lord was crucified, 

Who died to save us all. 

We may not know, we cannot tell, 
What pains He had to bear; 

But we believe it was for us 
He hung and suffered there. 

He died that we might be forgiven, 
He died to make us good, 



That we might go at last to heaven, 
Saved by his precious blood. 

There was no other good enough 

To pay the price of sin ; 
He only could unlock the gate 

Of heaven, and let us in. 

Oh, dearly, dearly has He loved! 

And we must love Him, too, 
And trust in His redeeming blood, 

And try His works to do.

It is finished ! Blessed Jesus, 

Thou hast breathed Thy latest sigh, 

Teaching us, the sons of Adam, 
How the Son of God can die. 

Lifeless lies the broken body, 

Hidden in its rocky bed, 
Laid aside like folded garment: 

Where is now the Spirit fled? 

In the gloomy realms of darkness 
Shines a light unknown before, 

For the Lord of dead and living 
Enters at the open door. 

See! He comes, a willing victim, 

Unresisting hither led ; 
Passing from the cross of sorrow 

To the mansions of the dead. 

Lo! the heavenly light around Him 
As He draws 1 1 is people near; 

All amazed they stand rejoicing 
At the gracious words they hear.

For Himself proclaims the story 
Of His own incarnate life, 

And the death He died to save us, 
Victory in that awful strife. 

Partriarch and priest and prophet 
Gather round Him as He stands, 

In adoring faith and gladness, 
Hearing of the pierced hands. 

Oh, the bliss to which He calls them, 
Ransomed by His precious blood, 

From the gloomy realm of darkness 
To the paradise of God! 

There in lowliest joy and wonder 
Stands the robber at His side, 

Reaping now the blessed promise 
Spoken by the Crucified. 

Jesus, Lord of dead and living, 
Let Thy mercy rest on me ; 

Grant me too, when life is finished, 
Rest in Paradise 1 with Thee.

"Welcome, happy morning," age to age shall say; 
Kell to-day is vanquished, heaven is won to-day. 
Lo, the Dead is living, God for evermore! 
Him their true Creator all His works adore. 

"Welcome, happy morning," age to age shall say. 

Earth with joy confesses, clothing her for spring, 
All good gifts returned with her returning King; 
Bloom in every meadow, leaves on every bough, 
Speak His sorrow ended, hnil His triumph now. 
Welcome, happy morning, &c. 

Months in due succession, days of lengthening light, 
Hours and passing moments praise Thee in their flight; 
Brightness cf the morning, sky, and fields, and sea, 
Vanquisher of darkness, bring their praise to Thee. 
Welcome, happy morning, &c. 

Maker and Redemer, life and health of all, 
Thou from heaven beholding human nature's fall, 
Of the Father's Godhead true and only Son, 
Manhood to deliver, manhood didst put on. 
i Welcome, happy morning, &c. 



Thou, of life the Author, death didst undergo, 
Tread the path of darkness, saving strength to show ; 
Come, then, True and Faithful, now fulfil Thy word; 
'Tis Thine own third morning; rise, my buried Lord! 
Welcome, happy morning, &c. 

Loose the hearts long prisoned, bound with Satan's chain; 
All that now is fallen raise to life again ; 
Show Thy face in brightness, bid the nations see; 
Bring again our daylight: day returns with Thee. 

" Welcome, happy morning," age to age shall say.

Of triumphant gladness! 
God hath brought His Israel 

Into joy from sadness, — 
Loosed from Pharaoh's bitter yoke 

Jacob's sons and daughters, — 
Led them with unmoistened feet 

Through the Red Sea waters. 

'Tis the spring of souls to-day: 
Christ hath burst His prison, 

From the frost and gloom of death 
Light and life have risen. 



All the winter of our sins, 
Long and dark, is flying 

From His face to whom we give 
Thanks and praise undying. 

Now the Queen of seasons, bright 

With the day of splendor, 
With the royal feast of feasts, 

Comes its joy to render; 
Comes to glad Jerusalem, 

Who with tru« affection 
Welcomes in unwearied strains 

Jesus' resurrection!

Sing to God a hymn of gladness, 

Sing to God a hymn of praise;

For the world's salvation bled, 
Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, 

Now is risen from the dead. 

Christ is risen, Christ the first-fruits 

Of the holy harvest field. 
Which will all its full abundance 

At His second coming yield; 
Then the golden ears of harvest 

Will their heads before Him wave, 
Ripened by His glorious sunshine 

From the furrows of the grave. 



Christ is risen, we are risen ! 

Shed upon us heavenly grace, 
Rain, and dew, and gleams of glory 

From the brightness of Thy face;" 
That we, with our hearts in heaven, 

Here on earth may fruitful be, 
And by angel-hands be gathered, 

And be ever, Lord, with Thee.

He led them unto Bethany, 
He raised His hands on high, 

And, while He blessed them, upward rose 
All glorious to the sky. 

A cloud received Him from their sight, 

A cloud of angels fair, 
Yet they continued gazing up, 

As if He still were there ! 

So well they loved the incarnate God, 
Their hearts were borne away 



But at the angel's voice they turned 

Back to Jerusalem, 
In faith to wait the gift from heaven, 

Their Lord had promised them. 

Then, filled with God the Holy Ghost, 
They preached, baptised, and taught, 

Till they, through suffering, pain. and death, 
To perfect joy were brought. 

O Master, when our hearts are sad, 
Uplift them unto heaven, 



Toheaven with Him — earth seemed so poor I If sloth should tempt us, show the crowns 
That first ascension day. To faithful servants given. 

In danger guide and guard our steps, 

Be nigh when earth seems fair, 
Be here our friend, our strength, our shield, 

Our joy and glory there!

Open stood the gates of heaven, 

And a shining angel band 
Swift on joyful wing descended, 

Hovering over Judah's land. 
There they told the wondrous story 

Of the Saviour's lowly birth, 
Sang "To God on high be glory, 

And to men be peace on earth." 

Open stand the gates of heaven, 
Jesus is gone up on high, 

Jesus, Who in David's city 

Once was born to bleed and die. 



There for us He lives in glory, 
Waits to welcome us above ; 

Sing we loud the wondrous story 
Of our great Redeemer's love. 

Open stand the gates of heaven, 

Thither let our hearts ascend, 
And our voice of adoration 

With the notes of angels blend. 
Now our hearts to Jesus giving, 

May we serve Him day by day; 
Be our lives one glad thanksgiving 

For the joys of Christmas Day.

The golden gates are lifted up, 

The doors are open wide, 
The King of Glory is gone in, 

Unto His Father's side. 

Thou art gone up before us, Lord, 

To make for us a place, 
That we may be where now Thou art, 

And look upon God's face. 

And ever on our earthly path 
A gleam of glory lies,

A light still breaks behind the cloud, 
That veiled Thee from our eyes. 

Lift up our hearts, lift up our minds, 
Let Thy dear grace be given, 

That while we wander here below, 
Our treasure be in heaven. 

That where Thou art,at God's right hand, 
Our hope, our love may be; 

Dwell Thou in us, that we may dwell 
For ever, Lord, in Thee.

When God of old came down from heaven, 
In power and wrath He came; 

Before His feet the clouds were riven, 
Half darkness and half flame: 

But when He came the second time, 

He came in power and love ; 
Softer than gale at morning prime 

Hovered His Holy Dove. 

The fires that rushed on Sinai down 

In sudden torrents dread, 
Now gently light, a glorious crown, 

On every sainted head. 



And as on Israel's awe-struck ear 

The voice exceeding loud, 
The trump, that angels quake to hear, 

Thrilled from the deep dark cloud ; 

So, when the Spirit of our God 
Came down His flock to find, 

A voice from heaven was heard abroad, 
A rushing, mighty wind. 

It fills the church of God; it fills 

The sinful world around ; 
Only in stubborn hearts and wills 

No place for it is found. 



Come, Lord, come wisdom, love, and power, 

Open our ears to hear; 
Let us not miss the accepted hour; 

Save, Lord, by love or fear.

Holy Ghost! come down upon Thy children, 
Give us grace and make us Thine; 

Thy tender fires within us kindle, 
Blessed Spirit! Dove Divine! 

For all within us, good and holy, 
Is from Thee, Thy precious gift; 

In all our joys, in all our sorrows, 
Wistful hearts to Thee we lift. 
Holy Ghost! &c. 



For Thou to us art more than father, 
More than sister in Thy love, 

So gentle, patient and forbearing, 
Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove! 
'Holy Ghost! &c 



Now, if our hearts do not deceive us. 
We would take Thee for our Lord; 

O dearest Spirit! make us faithful 
To Thy least and lightest word. 
Holy Ghost! &c. 



Oh, we have grieved Thee, gracious Spirit ! Ah, sweet Consoler! though we cannot 
Wayward, wanton, cold are we ; Love Thee as Thou lovest us, 

And still our sins, new every morning, Yet, if Thou deign'st our hearts to kindle, 
Never yet have wearied Thee. They will not be always thus. 

Holy Ghost! &c. Holy Ghost! &c. 



Dear Paraclete! how hast Thou waited 
While our hearts were slowly turned? 

How often hath Thy love been slighted, 
While for us it grieved and burned ! 
Holy Ghost! &c. 



With hearts so vile, how dare we venture* 
Holy Ghost, to love Thee so? 

And how canst Thou with such compassion, 
Bear so long with things so low ? 
Holy Ghost! &c

Come, gracious Spirit, heavenly Dove, 
With light and comfort from above; 
Be Thou our guardian, Thou our guide, 
O'er every thought and step preside. 

The light of truth to us display, 

And make us know and choose Thy way; 

Plant holy fear in every heart, 

That we from God may ne'er depart. 

Lead us to Christ, the Living Way, 
Nor let us from His precepts stray; 
Lead us to holiness, the road 
That we must take to dwell with God. 

Lead us to heaven that we may share 
Fulness or joy for ever there : 
Lead us to God, our final rest, 
To be with Him for ever blest!

Reverently we worship Thee, 

High and Holy Trinity! 

One in Three and Three in One, 

Seated on Thy heavenly throne; 

Thanks and praise to Thee we pay, 

Who art God and Lord for aye. 

Day and night unceasing praise 
All the hosts of heaven upraise; 
Saints, their life of trial past, 
Crowns of gold before Thee cast; 
All things cry, with one accord, 
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord! 

Holy Father, Who in love 
Sentest Jesus from above; 
Very man, yet God the Son,

Who for us hast glory won. 
Holy Ghost, our life and light, 
We to bless Thy Name unite. 

Wondrous is the mystery 

Of the Holy Trinity; 

Not the angels bright, who stand 

Near the throne at God's right hand, 

Deepest secrets can declare 

Which our God hath hidden there. 

Only this, O Lord, we know, 

; Tis from thence all blessings flow; 

We, who see not, may adore, 

We may love Thee more and more, 

Praising, with the heavenly host, 

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Glory to the Father give ! 

God in whom we move and live; 

Children's prayers He deigns to hear; 

Children's songs delight His ear. 

Glory to the Son we bring, 

Christ our Prophet, Priest, and King; 

Children raise your sweetest strain 

To the Lamb, for He was slain. 



Glory to the Holy Ghost, 
Who reclaims the sinner lost: 
Children's minds may He inspire, 
Touch their tongues with holy tire! 
Glory in the highest be 
To the blessed Trinity, 
For the gospel from above, 
For the word that God is love.

Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee; 
Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and Mighty! 

God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity ! 

Holy, Holy, Holy! all the saints adore Thee, 

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea; 

Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee, 
Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be. 



Holy, Holy, Holy! though the darkness hide Thee, 
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see, 

Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee 
Perfect in power, in love, and purity. 

Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty! 

All Thy works shall praise Thy Name, in earth, and sky, and sea; 
Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and Mighty! 

God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity.

God the Father! full of grace, 
Dwell within this holy place ; 
Still, as in the days of old, 
Thy great deep of love unfold ; 
Shining from the mercy-seat, 
Here Thy waiting children meet. 
( iod of glory, God of grace, 
Make our hearts Thy dwelling-place. 



God the Son ! for ever be 
With us when we worship Thee; 
By Thine agony and sweat, 
By Thy cross uplifted yet, 
Hear us, Jesus, when we cry; 
Lamb of God, draw nigh, draw nigh. 
God of glory, God of grace, 
Make our hearts Thy dwelling-place. 



God the Spirit! in Thy might 
Speak, and kindle life and light; 
Quicken, save, and guide, and bless, 
Fill our souls with righteousness; 
When the Gospel sound is heard, 
Fall on those that hear the word. 
God of glory, God of grace, 
Make our hearts Thy dwelling-place. 



Holy Trinity! give ear 

To the worship offered here; 

Triune God, this temple own. 

Make our hearts Thy living throne; 

So shall daily incense rise 

To Thy temple in the skies. 
God of glory, God of grace, 
Make our hearts Thy dwelling-place.

Holy Spirit, Life, and Light, 
Wisdom, Pureness, Love, and Might, 

Fallen souls restore ; 
Guide our spirits when we pray, 
Cheer us, help us on our way, 
Make us holier day by day, 

Till we sin no more. 

Ever blessed Three in One, 
May Thy will in us be done, 

Show in us Thy love; 
Keep us Thine while here below, 
Make us in Thy grace to grow, 
And at last Thy glory know 

In the world above. 



Great Creator, Lord of all, 
Father, Friend, on Thee we call, 

Hear Thy children's prayer. 
Guide us, rule us, as is best, 
With Thy loving favor blest, 
Till we reach Thy home of rest, 

And are with Thee there. 

Jesus, Who for man didst die, 
Who dost plead Thy death on high, 

And our place prepare, 
From sin's bondage set us free, 
Lead us onward after Thee, 
Till with joy Thy face we see, 

And Thy likeness wear.

The Son of God goes forth to war, 

A kingly crown to gain, 
His blood-red banner streams afar; 

Who follows in His train? 
Who best can drink his cup of woe, 

Triumphant over pain, 
Who patient bears his cross below, 

He follows in His train. * 



The martyr first, whose eagle eye 

Could pierce beyond the grave, 
Who saw his Master in the sky, 

And called on Him to save. 
Like Him, with pardon on his tongue, 

In midst of mortal pain, 
He prayed for them that did the wrong, 

W 7 ho follows in His train? 



A glorious band, the chosen few, 

( )n whom the Spirit came, 
Twelve valiant saints, their hope they knew, 

And mocked the cross and flame. 
They met the tyrant's brandished steel, 

The lion's gory mane, 
They bowed their necks, the death to feel; 

Who follows in their train? 



A noble army, men and boys, 

The matron and the maid, 
Around the Saviour's throne rejoice, 

In robes of light arrayed. 
They climbed the steep ascent of heaven 

Through peril, toil, and pain; 
O God, to us may grace be given 

To follow in their train.

How bright those glorious spirits shine! 

Whence all their white array ? 
How came they to the blissful seats 

Of everlasting day? 

Lo, these are they from sufferings great 
Who came to realms of light, 

And in the blood of Christ have washed 
Those robes which shine so bright. 

Now with triumphal palms they stand 

Before the throne on high, 
And serve the God they love amidst 

The glories of the sky. 



Hunger and thirst are felt no more, 
Nor sun with scorching ray; 

God is their sun, whose cheering beams 
Diffuse eternal day. 

The Lamb, who reigns upon the throne, 

Shall o'er them still preside, 
Feed them with nourishment divine, 

And all their footsteps guide. 

'Mid pastures green He'll lead His flock, 
Where living streams appear; 

And God the Lord from every eye 
Shall wipe off every tear. 



To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, 
To God Whom we adore, 

Be glory as it was, is now, 
And shall be evermore.

Hark, the sound of holy voices, chanting o'er the crystal sea, 
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Lord, to Thee. 
Multitudes which none can number, like the stars in glory stand, 
Clothed in white apparel, holding palms of victory in their hand. 

Patriarch, and holy Prophet, who prepared the way of Christ, 
King, Apostle, Saint, Confessor, Martyr, and Evangelist, 
Saintly maiden, godly matron, widows who have watched to prayer, 
Joined in holy concert, singing to the Lord of all, are there. 



They have come from tribulation, and have washed their robes in Blood, 
Washed them in the blood of Jesus; tried they were, and firm they stood; 
Mocked, imprisoned, stoned, tormented, sawn asunder, slain with sword, 
They have conquered Death and Satan by the might of Christ the Lord. 

Marching with Thy cross their banner, they have triumphed, following 
Thee, the captain of salvation — Thee, their Saviour and their king; 
Gladly, Lord, with Thee they suffered; gladly, Lord, with Thee they died; 
And by death to life immortal they were born and glorified. 

Now they reign in heavenly glory, now they walk in golden light, 
Now they drink, as from a river, holy bliss and infinite; 
Love and peace they taste for ever, and all truth and knowledge see 
In the beatific vision of the blessed Trinity. 

God of God, the One-begotten, Light of light, Emmanuel, . 
In Whose body joined together all the saints for ever dwell, 
Pour upon us of Thy fulness, that we may for evermore 
God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost adore.

Their names are names of kings 

Of heavenly line; 
The pride of earthly things 

They dared resign. 

They bore the Spirit's sword 
And faith's strong shield; 

They fought for God the Lord 
On many a field. 



Though hard their earthly lot, 
'Mid hate and scorn, 

In life regarded not, 
In death forlorn; 

Yet blest that end of woe, 
And those sad days; 

Only man's blame below; 
Above, God's praise. 



So did the life of pain 

In glory cease: 
Lord God, may we attain 

Their home of peace!

Grant us grace to persevere ; 
Leader of the hosts of God, 
May we tread where Thou hast trod ! 

Once for Thee, the crucified, 
Many a faithful martyr died, 
How can we, Thy children, show 
All our love for all Thy woe?

Fire, and beasts, and piercing steel;

Pain or loss for Thy dear Name.

Thoughtless jest or spiteful word; 
Curbing angry speech and tear,

The saints of God! their conflict past, 

And life's long battle won at last, 

No more they need the shield or sword, 

They cast them down before their Lord: 

Oh, happy saints! for ever blest, 

At Jesus' feet how safe your rest ! 

The saints of God ! their wanderings done, 

No more their weary course they run, 

No more they faint, no more they fall, 

No foes oppress, no fears appal: 

( )h, happy saints! for ever blest, 

In that dear home how sweet your rest! 



The saints of God ! life's voyage o'er, 
Safe landed on that blissful shore, 
No stormy tempests now they dread, 
No roaring billows lift their head : 
Oh, happy saints! for ever blest, 
In that calm haven of your rest! 

The saints of Gcd their vigils keep 
While yet their mortal bodies sleep, 
Till, from the dust they too shall rise, 
And soar triumphant to the skies: 
Oh, happy saints! rejoice and sing; 
He quickly comes, your Lord and King. 



O God of saints, to Thee we cry; 
O Saviour, plead for us on high; 
O Holy Ghost, our guide and friend, 
Grant us Thy grace till life shall end: 
That with all saints, our rest may be 
In that bright Paradise with Thee.

For all the Saints who from their labors rest, 
Who Thee by faith before the world confessed, 
Thy Name, O Jesus, be for ever blest. 

Alleluia! 
Thou wast their rock, their fortress, and their might; 
Thou, Lord, their captain in the well-fought fight; 
Thou in the darkness drear their one true light, 

Alleluia ! 
For the Apostles' glorious company, 
Who, bearing forth the cross o'er land and sea, 
Shook all the mighty world, we sing to Thee. 

Alleluia! 
For the Evangelists, by whose pure word, 
Like fourfold streams, the garden of the Lord 
Is fair and fruitful, be Thy name adored. 

Alleluia! 
For Martyrs, who with rapture-kindled eye, 
Saw the bright crown descending from the sky, 
And dying, grasped it, Thee we glorify. 

Alleluia! 
Oh, may Thy soldiers, faithful, true, and bold, 
Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old, 
And win, with them, the victor's crown of gold. 

Alleluia! 



Oh, blest communion! fellowship divine! 
We feebly struggle; they in glory shine! 
Yet all are one in Thee, for all are Thine. 
Alleluia! 

And when the strife is fierce, the warfare long, 
Steals on the ear the distant triumph-song, 
And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong. 
Alleluia! 

The golden evening brightens in the west: 
Soon, soon, to faithful warriors cometh rest; 
Sweet is the calm of Paradise the blest. 
Alleluia! 

But lo, there breaks a yet more glorious day ! 
The saints triumphant rise in bright array ! 
The King of Glory passes on His way. 
Alleluia ! 

From earth's wide bounds, from ocean's farthest coast, 
Through gates of pearl streams on the countless host, 
Singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. 
Alleluia!

Saviour, Who Thy flock art feeding 
With the shepherd's kindest care, 

All the feeble gently leading, 

While the lambs Thy bosom share. 

Now, these little ones receiving, 
Fold them in Thy gracious arm ; 

There, we know, Thy word believing, 
Only there, secure from harm. 



Never, from Thy pasture roving. 
Let them be the lion's prey; 

Let Thy tenderness so loving 

Keep them all life's dangerous way. 

Then within Thy fold eternal, 
Let them find a resting-place: 

Feed in pastures ever vernal, 
Drink the rivers of Thy grace.

A matchless Gift, Thy Best Beloved, 

To be our very own — 
To take our nature, and on earth 

In human form to dwell — 
Oh ! love whose heights we cannot reach! 

Whose depths we may not tell ! 



Since by adoption and by grace 

We are Thy children now— 
Thine by the Gift Thou gavest us, 

Thine by baptismal vow — 
We pray that with another Gift 

Our souls may be endued, 
That they may by Thy Spirit's power* 

Be day by day renewed. 



How glorified our nature now, 

Uplifted to the skies! 
To what a wondrous height may we, 

As sons and daughters, rise'! 
No wonder that a shout of praise 

Goes up from every land, 
For God has giv'n us all His best 

With an ungrudging hand. 



We love Thee, Father, for Thy Gift 

So gloriously free ; 
We love Thee for receiving us 

Into Thy family : 
And as we grasp what Thou hast given, 

We hymns of triumph sing, 
And hail with joy unspeakable 

The Birthday of Our King.

Lord Jesus Christ, our Lord most dear, 
As Thou wast once an infant here, 
So give this child of Thine, we pray, 
Thy grace and blessing day by day. 

O Holy Jesus, L^rd Divine, 

We pray Thee guard this child of Thine. 

As in Thy heavenly kingdom, Lord, 
All things obey Thy sacred word, 



Do Thou Thy mighty succor give, . 
And shield this child at morn and eve. 
O Holy Jesus, Lord Divine, &c. 

Their watch let angels round it keep 
Where'er it be, awake, asleep; 
Thy holy cross now let it bear, 
That it Thy crown with saints may wear. 
O Holy Jesus, Lord Divine, &c,

Lo! Thy children venture near;

Sealing us for ever Thine

Thine we were, before our eyes 
Opened first on earth and skies; 
Thine before our lips could frame 
This Thy dear and awful name; 

Thine, when on each infant face 
Dropped the dewy pledge of grace, 
Then, by Jesus' dying sign, 
Marked, and claimed, and owned as Thine. 



Through our childhood's joys and fears, I 
Through our school-tide's passing years, 
Love divine, unchanging, free, 
Called and drew our hearts to Thee. 

Thou hast helped us; Thou hast taught 
All the works Thy love hath wrought; I 
All our lost and evil case; 
All the marvels of Thy grace. 

Sinful hearts indeed and weak 
Here Thy promised blessing seek ; 



Small our might, and strong our foe; 
Yet the saving name we know. 

In that name our prayers we pour; 
Send Thy Spirit down once more. 
Let the sevenfold gift be shed 
Largely on each bending head. 

So, with strength renewed to-day, 
Send us forth on life's rough way; 
Bound to Thee by love's strong cords. 
Living, dying, still our Lord's!

Holy Spirit, Lord of Love, 
Thou Who earnest from above, 
Gifts of blessings to bestow 
On Thy waiting church below; 
Once again in love draw near 
To Thy children gathered here. 

From their bright baptismal day, 
Through their childhood's onward way, 
Thou hast been their constant guide, 
Watching ever by their side; 
May they now, till life shall end, 
Choose and know Thee as their friend. ' 



Give them light, Thy truth to see, 
Give them life to live for Thee, 
Daily power to conquer sin, 
Patient faith the crown to win ; 
Shield them from temptation's breath, 
Keep them faithful unto death. 

When the holy vow is made, 
When the holy hands are laid, 
Come in this most solemn hour, 
With Thy seven-fold gifts of power, 
Come, Thou blessed Spirit, come, 
Make each heart Thy happy home.

Holy Spirit, Lord of glory, 
Look on us Thy flock to-day, 

Meekly kneeling at Thy footstool 
For Thy sevenfold gifts we pray; 

Guide us all our earthly journey 
In the true and narrow way. 



Foes on every hand are round us, 
And our hearts are weak and frail; 

Gird us with Thy heavenly armor; 
Never let us yield or quail; 

Give us victory in the struggle, 
When the hosts of sin assail. 



Blessed Jesus, draw Thou near us, 
As before Thy cross we how ; 

Help us to be true and faithful, 
Seal our sacramental vow; 

We Thy soldiers are, and servants; 
Hear our solemn promise now. 



Lead us by Thy guiding presence 
Through the waste with danger rife; 

Feed us with the heavenly manna, 
That we faint not in the strife; 

Slake our weary spirits' thirsting 
From the living well of life. 



Looking ever unto Jesus, 

Leaning on His staff and rod; 

May we follow in His footsteps, 
Tread the path that Jesus trod, 

Till we dwell with Him for ever 
In the paradise of God.

My God, and is Thy table spread, 

And does Thy cup with love o'erflow ? 

Thither be all Thy children led, 

And let them all Thy sweetness know. 

Hail! sacred feast, which Jesus makes, 
Rich banquet of His flesh and blood: 

Thrice happy he who here partakes 
That sacred stream, that heavenly food. 

O let Thy table honored be, 

And furnished well with joyful guests: 



1 And may each soul salvation see, 
That here its holy pledges tastes. 

Drawn by Thy quickening grace, O Lord, 
In countless numbers let them come; 

And gather from their Father's board 
The bread that lives beyond the tomb. 

Nor let Thy spreading Gospel rest 

Till thro' the world Thy truth has run; 
; Till with this bread all men be blest, 
Who see the light or feel the sun. 




Blessed art thou, who, passed before, 
Hast found through death thy greatest 
gain; 

Whose opening life, so quickly o'er, 
Is hidden where is no more pain. 

Blessed art thou whose childish feet 
Stray where the living waters flow; 

For thee no glow of summer heat, 
No chilling touch of winter's snow. 

Blessed art thou ; no storm can sweep 
Where love so soon hath wafted thee; 



We toil in rowing on life's deep; 
But where thou art is no more sea. 

The Shepherd hath Himself removed 
The lamb which to His care was given; 

For He on earth, Whom children loved, 
Hath called His child from earth to 
Heaven. 

No cloud is there, no sound of woe, 
But peace unearthly, pure and deep; 

We know thou art with Christ; for so 
He giveth His beloved sleep.

Tender Shepherd, Thou hast stilled 
Now Thy little lamb's brief weeping; 

Oh, how peaceful, pale, and mild, 
In its narrow bed 'tis sleeping! 

And no sign of anguish sore 

Heaves that little bosom more. 

In this world of care pain, 
Lord, Thou wouldst no longer leave it ; 
To Thy meadows bright and fair, 



Lovingly Thou dost receive it: 

Clothed in robes of spotless white, 
Now it dwells with Thee in light. 

Ah, Lord Jesus, grant that we 
There may live where it is living, 

And the blissful pastures see 
That its heavenly food are giving: 

Lost awhile our treasured love, 

Gained for ever, safe above.

From Greenland's icy mountains, 

From India's coral strand, 
Where Afric's sunny fountains 

Roll down their golden sand; 
From many an ancient river, 

From many a palmy plain, 
They call us to deliver 

Their land from error's chain. 



What though the spicy breezes 

Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle, 
Though every prospect pleases, 

And only man is vile; 
In vain with lavish kindness 

The gifts of God are strewn ; 
The heathen in his blindness 

Bows down to wood and stone. 



Can we, whose souls are lighted 

With wisdom from on high, 
Can we, to men benighted, 

The lamp of life deny ? 
Salvation, oh, salvation! 

The joyful sound proclaim, 
Till each remotest nation 

Has learned Messiah's Name. 



Waft, waft, ye winds, His story, 

And you, ye waters, roll, 
Till, like a sea of glory, 

It spreads from pole to pole; 
Till o'er our ransomed nature 

The Lamb, for sinners slain, 
Redeemer, King, Creator, 

In bliss returns to reign.

Almighty God, Whose only Son, 
O'er sin and death the triumph won, 
And ever lives to intercede 
For souls who Thy sweet mercy need. 

In His dear name to Thee we pray 
For all who err and go astray, 
For sinners, wheresoe'er they be, 
Who do not serve and honor Thee. 

There are who never yet have heard 
The tidings of Thy blessed word, 
But still in heathen darkness dwell, 
Without one thought of heaven or hell; 

And some within Thy sacred fold 
To holy things are dead and cold, 



And waste the precious hours of life 
In selfish ease, or toil, or strife: 

And many a quickened soul within 
There lurks the secret love of sin, 
A wayward will, or anxious fears, 
Or lingering taint of bygone years. 

Oh, give repentance true and deep 
To all Thy lost and wandering sheep, 
And kindle in their hearts the fire 
Of holy love and pure desire. 

That so from angel-hosts above 
May rise a sweeter song of love, 
And we, with all the blest, adore 
Thy name, O God, for evermore.

His truth at all times firmly stood, 
And shall from age to age endure. 

To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost;

From men, and from the angel host, 
Be praise and glory evermore.

O happy Christian children, 
Who seek a home above, 

And read in all creation 
A heavenly Father's love. 

What earthly foes can harm us, 
What power can make us fear, 

If God is watching o'er us 
With succor ever near? 

His ear in all our dangers 
Is listening when we call; 

His hand in all temptations 
Will hold us lest we fall. 



In joy we now approach Him, 
In hope we kneel and pray; 

For He Whose blood redeemed us 
Will wash our sins away. 

When earth no help can find us, 
And all its lights are gone, 

He sends His blessed Spirit 
To lead us safely on. 

And when at last our bodies 
Mu>t lay them down to rest, 

With Him we trust our spirits 
Will be for ever blest.

By cool Siloam's shady rill 

How sweet the lily grows, 
How sweet the breath beneath the hill 

Of Sharon's dewy rose. 

Lo ! such the child whose early feet 
The paths of peace have trod, 

Whose tender heart with influence sweet, 
Is upward drawn to God. 

By cool Siloam's shady rill 
The lily must decay ; 



The rose that blooms beneath the hill 

Must shortly fade away. 
O Thou, Whose infant feet were found 

Within Thy Father's shrine, 
Whose years, with changeless virtue 
crowned, 

Were all alike divine. 
Dependent on Thy bounteous breath, 

We seek Thy grace alone, 
In childhood, manhood, age, and death, 

To us still Thine own.

COME, ye children, sweetly sing, 
Praises to your Saviour King; 
Hearts and voices gladly bring; 
Praise His name. 

Jesus is the children's Friend, 
Loving, faithful to the end; 
Richest gifts from Him descend, • 
Joy and peace. 

Once from heaven to earth He came, 
Suffered death, contempt, and blame, 
Died upon a cross of shame 
Crowned with thorns. 

'Twas our sinful souls to save 
Thus His precious blood He gave; 




Ransomed now from sin's dark grave, 
We may sing. 

O, what boundless grace and love, 
All our highest thoughts above ! 
Fear and unbelief remove 
At the cross. 

Blessed Jesus, loving, kind. 
We would early seek and find ; 
And our souls in covenant bind, 
Thine to be. 

For our sins we deeply grieve, 
But Thy promise we believe, 
"Him that cometh I receive-" 
Lord, we come.

There is a blessed home 

Beyond this land of woe, 
Where trials never come, 

Nor tears of sorrow flow ; 
Where faith is lost in sight, 

And patient hope is crowned, 
And everlasting light 

Its glory throws around. 

There is a land of peace, 
Good angels know it well ; 

Glad songs that never cease 
Within its portals swell ; 



Around its glorious Throne 
Ten thousand saints adore 

Christ, with the Father One, 
And Spirit, evermore. 

Oh, joy all joys beyond, 

To see the Lamb Who died, 
And count each sacred wound 

In hands, and feet, and side! 
To give to Him the praise 

Of every triumph won, 
And sing through endless days 

The great things He hath done. 



Look up, ye saints of God, 

Nor fear to tread below 
Thy path your Saviour trod 

Of daily toil and woe; 
W 7 ait but a little while 

In uncomplaining love, 
His own most gracious smile 

Shall welcome you above.

Rejoice, ye pure in heart! 
Rejoice! give thanks and sing; 
Your festal banner wave on high, 
The Cross of Christ, your king. 

Fright youth and snow-crowned age, 
Strong men and maidens meek, 
Raise high your free exulting song, 
God's wondrous praises speak. 

Yes, onward, onward still, 
With hymn, and chant, and song, 
Thro' gate, and porch, and columned aisle, 
The hallowed pathways throng. 

With all the angel choirs, 
With all the saints on earth, 
Pour out the strains of joy and bliss, 
True rapture, noblest mirth. 



Your clear hosannas raise, 
And alleluias loud ; 
Whilst answering echoes upward float, 
Like wreaths of incense cloud. 

With voice as full and strong 
As ocean's surging praise, 
Send forth the hymns our fathers loved, 
The psalms of ancient days. 

Yes, on through life's long path, 
Still chanting as ye go, 
From youth to age, by night and day, 
In gladness and in woe. 

Still lift your standard high, 
Still march in firm array, 
As warriors through the darkness toil 
Till dawns the golden day. 



At last the march shall end, 
The wearied ones shall rest, 
The pilgrims find their Father's house, 
Jerusalem the blest. 

Then on, ye pure in heart, 
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing; 
Your festal banner wave on high, 
The cross of Christ, your king. 

Praise Him Who reigns on high, 
The Ford Whom we adore, 
The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, 
One God for evermore.

O Jesus, Thou art standing 

Outside the fast- closed door, 
In lowly patience waiting 

To pass the threshold o'er : 
Shame on us, Christian brothers, 

His name and sign who bear, 
O shame, thrice shame upon us 

To keep Him standing there! 

O Jesus, Thou art knocking : 
And lo ! the hand is scarred, 

And thorns Thy brow encircle, 
And tears Thy face have marred:

And will ye treat Me so?"

We open now the door:

All glorious above; 
O gratefully sing 

His power and His love; 
Our Shield and Defender, 

The Ancient of days, 
Pavilioned in splendor, 

And girded with praise. 

O tell of His might, 

O sing of His grace, 
Whose robe is the light, 

Whose canopy, space; 
His chariots of wrath 

Deep thunder-clouds form, 
And dark is His path 

On the wings of the storm. 

Thy bountiful care 

What tongue can recite? 
It breathes in the air, 

It shines in the light, 



It streams from the hills, 
It descends to the plain, 

And sweetly distils 

In the dew and the rain. 

Frail children of dust, 

And feeble as frail, 
In Thee do we trust, 

Nor find Thee to fail; 
Thy mercies, how tender, 

How firm to the end, 
Our Maker, Defender, 

Redeemer, and Friend! 

O measureless might, 

Ineffable love! 
While angels delight 

To hymn Thee above, 
The humbler creation, 

Though feeble their lays, 
With true adoration 

Shall lisp to Thy praise.

God of might and power! 
Now Thyself art dwelling 

In us at this hour. 

Nature cannot hold Thee, 
Heaven is all too strait 

For Thine endless glory, 
And Thy royal state. 

Out beyond the shining 
Of the furthest star, 

Thou art ever stretching 
Infinitely far. 

Yet the hearts of children 
Hold what worlds cannot, 

And the God of wonders 
Loves the lowly spot. 

Jesus, gentlest Saviour! 
Thou art in ifts now : 



Fill us full of goodness, 
Till our hearts o'erflow. 

Multiply our graces, 
Chiefly love and fear, 

And, dear Lord ! the chiefest, 
Grace to persevere. 

Oh, how can we thank Thee, 

For a gift like this, 
Gift that truly maketh 

Heaven's eternal bliss? 

Ah, when wilt Thou always 
Make our hearts Thy home? 

We must wait for Heaven — 
Then the day will come. 

Now at least we'll keep Thee, 
All the time we may; 

But Thy grace and blessing 
We will keep alway.

Saviour, blessed Saviour, 

Listen whilst we sing, 
Hearts and voices raising 

Praises to our King; 
All we have we offer; 

All we hope to be, 
Body, soul, and spirit, 

All we yield to Thee. 

Nearer, ever nearer, 

Christ, we draw to Thee, 
Deep in adoration 

Bending low the knee; 
Thou for our redemption 

Cam'st on earth to die ; 
Thou, that we may follow, 

Hast gone up on high. 



Great and ever greater 

Are Thy mercies here, 
True and everlasting 

Are the glories there, 
Where no pain, or sorrow, 

Toil, or care, is known, 
Where the angel-legions 

Circle round Thy throne. 

Dark and ever darker 

W T as the wintry past, 
Now a ray of gladness 

O'er our path is cast; 
Every day that passeth, 

Every hour that flies, 
Tells of love unfeigned, 

Love that never dies. 



Clearer still and clearer 

Dawns the light from heaven, 
In our sadness bringing 

News of sins forgiven ; 
Life has lost its shadows, 

Pure the light within; 
Thou hast shed Thy radiance 

On a world of sin. 

Brighter still and brighter 

Glows the western sun, 
Shedding all its gladness 

O'er our work that's done: 
Time will soon be over, 

Toil and sorrow past, 
May we, blessed Saviour, 

Find a rest at last. 



Onward, ever onward, 

Journeying o'er the road 
Worn by saints before us, 

Journeying on to God; 
Leaving all behind us, 

May we hasten on, 
Backward never looking 

Till the prize is won. « 

Bliss, all bliss excelling, 

When the ransomed soul, 
Earthly toils forgetting, 

Finds its promised goal; 
Where in joys unheard of 

Saints with Angels sing, 
Never weary raising 

Praises to their King.

Evensong is hushed in silence, 

And the hour of rest is nigh : 
Strengthen us for work to-morrow, 

Son of Mary, God Most High. 
Thou who in the village workshop, 

Fashioning the yoke and plough, 
Didst eat bread by daily labor, 

Succor them that labor now. 

We are weary of life-long toil, 
Of sorrow, and pain, and sin; 

But there is a City with streets of 
gold; 
And all is peace within. 

How are we to reach that City, 

Whose delights no tongue may tell ? 



By the faith that looks to Jesus, 
Who sat weary by the well : 

Sinful men and sinful women, 
He will wash our sins away; 

He will take us to the Sheepfold, 
Whence no sheep can ever stray. 
We are wean', <S:c. 

There the dear ones who have left us 

We shall some day meet again; 
There will be no bitter partings, 

No more sorrow, death or pain. 
Evensong has closed in silence, 

And the hour of rest is nigh : 
Lighten Thou our darkness, Jesus, 

Son of Mary, God Most High! 
We are weary, &c.

Day by day we magnify Thee — 

When our hymns in school we raise; 

Daily work begun and ended 
With the daily voice of praise. 

Day by day we magnify Thee- — 
When, as each new day is born, 

On our knees at home we bless Thee 
For the mercies of the morn. 

Day by day we magnify Thee — 
In our hymns before we sleep; 

Angels hear them, watching by us, 
Christ's dear lambs all night to keep. 

Day by day we magnify Thee — 
Not in words of praise alone; 



Truthful lips and meek obedience 
Show Thy glory in Thine own. 

Day by day we magnify Thee — 
When, for Jesus' sake, we try 

Every wrong to bear with patience, 
Every sin to mortify. 

Day by day we magnify Thee — 
Till our days on earth shall cease, 

Till we rest from these our labors, 
Waiting for Thy day in peace. 

Then, on that eternal morning. 
With Thy great eternal host, 

May we fully magnify Thee — 
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

Hark! hark, my soul! angelic songs are swelling 

O'er earth's green fields, and ocean's wave beat shore: 
How sweet the truth those blessed strains are telling 
Of that new life when sin shall be no more. 
Angels of Jesus, Angels of light, 
Singing to welcome the pilgrims of the night! 

Onward we go, for still we hear them singing, 
"Come, weary souls, for Jesus bids you come:" 

And through the dark, its echoes sweetly ringing, 
The music of the Gospel leads us home. 
Angels of Jesus, Angels of light, &c. 

Far, far away, like bells at evening pealing, 
The voice of Jesus sounds o'er land and sea, 

And laden souls, by thousands meekly stealing, 
Kind Shepherd, turn their weary steps to Thee. 
Angels of Jesus, Angels of light, &c. 

Rest comes at length; though life be long and dreary, 
The day must dawn, and darksome night be past; 

Faith's journey ends in welcome to the weary, 

And heaven, the heart's true home, will come at last. 
Angels of Jesus, Angels of light, &c.

Oh, what the joy and the glory must be, 
Those endless sabbaths the blessed ones see ! 
Crown for the valiant, to weary ones rest : 
God shall be all and in all ever blest. 

What are the monarch, his court, and his throne? 
What are the peace and the joy that they own ? 
Oh, that the blest ones, who in it have share, 
All that they feel could as fully declare ! 

Truly Jerusalem name we that shore, 

Vision of peace, that brings joy evermore; 

Wish and fulfilment can severed be ne'er, 

Nor the thing prayed for come short of the prayer. 

There, where no troubles distraction can bring, 
We the sweet anthems of Sion shall sing; 
While for Thy grace, Lord, their voices of praise 
Thy blessed people eternally raise. 

There dawns no sabbath, no sabbath is o'er, 
Those sabbath-keepers have one evermore; 
One and unending is that triumph-song 
Which to the angels and us shall belong. 



Now in the meanwhile, with hearts raised on high, 
We for that country must yearn and must sigh; 
Seeking Jerusalem, dear native land, 
Through our long exile on Babylon's strand. 

Low before Him with our praises we fall, 
Of Whom, and in Whom, and through Whom are all; 
Of Whom, the Father; and in Whom, the Son; 
Through Whom, the Spirit, with them ever One.

Jerusalem! my happy home! 

When shall I come to thee? 
When shall my sorrows have an end? 

Thy joys when shall I see? 

O happy harbor of the Saints, 

O sweet and pleasant soil, 
In thee no sorrow may be found, 

No grief, no care, no toil ! 

Jerusalem ! Jerusalem ! 

God grant I once may see 
Thy endless joys, and of the same 

Partaker aye to be ! 

Thy walls are made of precious stones, 
Thy bulwarks diamonds square, 

Thy gates are of right orient pearl, 
Exceeding rich and rare. 

Thy turrets and thy pinnacles 
With carbuncles do shine; 

Thy very streams are paved with gold, 
Surpassing clear and fine. 



There David stands, with harp in hands, 

As master of the choir ; 
Ten thousand times that man were blest, 

That might his music hear! 

Our Lady sings Magnificat 
With tones surpassing sweet, 

And ail the Virgins bear their part, 
Sitting about her feet. 

Te Deum doth Saint Ambrose sing, 

Saint Austin doth the like; 
Old Simeon and Zachary 

Have not their songs to seek. ' 

There Magdalene hath left her moan, 

And cheerfully doth sing 
With blessed. Saints whose harmony 

In every street doth ring. 

Jerusalem, my happy home, 
Would God I were in thee; 

Would God my woes were at an end, 
Thy joys that I might see.

Datly, daily sing the praises 
Of the City God hath made; 

In the beauteous fields of Eden 
Its foundation-stones are laid. 

that I had wings of angels 
Here to spread and heavenward fly, 

1 would seek the gates of Zion, 
Far beyond the starry sky! 

All the walls of that dear City 

Are of bright and burnished gold; 

It is matchless in its beauty, 
And its treasures are untold. 
O that I had wings, &c. 

In the midst of that dear City 
Christ is reigning on His seat, 

And the angels swing their censers 
In a ring about His feet. 

O that I had wings, &c. 






From the throne a river issues, 
Clear as crystal, passing bright, 

And it traverses the City 

Like a sudden gleam of light. 
O that I had wings, &c. 

There the meadows, green and dewy, 
Shine with lilies wondrous fair; 

Thousand, thousand are the colors 
Of the waving flowers there. 
O that I had wings, &c. 

There the wind is sweetly fragrant, 
And is laden with the song 

Of the Seraphs, and the Elders, 
And the great redeeming throng. 
O that I had wings, &c. 

O I would my ears were open 
Here to catch that happy strain! 

O I would my eyes some vision 
Of that Eden could attain ! 
O that I had wings, &c.

CHRIST, Who once amongst us 

As a child did dwell, 
Is the children's Saviour, 

And He loves us well; 
We must keep our promise 

Made Him at the font, 
Since He is our shepherd, 

That we may not want. 

There it was they laid us 

In those tender arms, 
Where the lambs are carried 

Safe from all alarms; 
If we trust His promise, 

He will let us rest 
In His arms for ever, 

Leaning on His breast. 

Though we may not see Him 

For a little while, 
We shall know He holds us, 

Often feel His smile; 



Death will be to slumber 
In that sweet embrace, 

And we shall awaken 
To behold His face. 

He will be our shepherd 

After as before, 
By still heavenly waters 

Lead us evermore; 
Make us lie in pastures 

Beautiful and green, 
Where none thirst or hunger, 

And no tears are seen. 

Jesus, our good shepherd, 

Laying down Thy life, 
Lest Thy sheep .should perish 

In the cruel strife. 
Help u< to remember 

All Thy love and care. 
Trust in Thee, and love Thee 

Always, everywhere.

In the Paradise of Jesus 

There are many homes of light, 
And they shine beyond the darkness 

With a radiance clear and bright. 

Oh, that I might hear the angels 
Singing o'er the crystal sea, 

And amidst the many mansions 
Find a home prepared for me! 

There are sounds of many voices 
In the golden streets above, 

Filling all the air with gladness, 
Blended in eternal love. 
Oh, that, &c.

In those quiet resting-places, 

Midst the pastures green and fair, 

Jesus gathers in the homeless, 

And He dwells among them there. 
Oh, that, &c. 

Can we see the happy faces 
Of the dear ones gone before? 

They are ready now to greet us 
When we gain that blessed shore. 
Oh, that, &c. 



Then the pearly gates, unfolding, 
Never shall be closed again, 

We shall see within the city 

Jesus, 'mid His white-robed train. 
Oh, that, &c. 

Oh, to join the alleluia, 

And the glad thanksgiving raise, 
With the ransomed hosts of Jesus, 

In their songs of endless praise !

I THINK when I read that sweet story of old, 

When Jesus was here among men, 
How He called little children, as lambs to His fold, 

I should like to have been with them then. 
I wish that His hands had been placed on my head, 

That His arms had been thrown around me; 
And that I might have seen His kind look when He said> 
II: "Let the little ones come unto Me." : I 



Yet still to His footstool in prayer I may go, 
And ask for a share of His love; 

And if I now earnestly seek Him below, 
I shall see Him and hear Him above, 

In that beautiful place He is gone to prepare 
For all who are washed and forgiven : 

And many dear children are gathering there, 

||: For of such is the kingdom of heaven. :|| 



But thousands and thousands, who wander and fall, 

Never heard of that heavenly home; 
I should like them to know there is room for them all, 

And Jesus has bid them to come. 
I long for the joy of that glorious time, 

The sweetest, the brightest, end best; 
When the dear little children of every clime 
|| : Shall crowd to His arms and be blest. :||

Marching as to war, 
With the Cross of Jesus 

Going on before. 
Christ the Royal Master, 
Leads against the foe, 
Forward into battle ; 
See I lis banners go. 

Onward, Christian soldiers, 

Marching as to war,

Going on before. 

At the sign of triumph 

Satan's host doth flee ; 
On, then, Christian soldiers, 



On to victory. 
Hell's foundations quiver 

At the shout of praise;

Moves the Church of God; 
Brothers, we are treading 

Where the Saints have trod; 
We are not divided, 

All one body we, 
One in hope and doctrine, 

One in charity.

Crowns and thrones may perish, 

Kingdoms rise and wane, 
Bat the Church of Jesus 

Constant will remain; 
Gates of hell can never 

'Gainst that Church prevail; 
"We have Christ's own promise, 

And that cannot fail. 
Onward, &c. 



Onward, then, ye people, 

Join our happy throng, 
Blend with ours your voices, 

In the triumph song — 
Glory, laud, and honor, 

Unto Christ the King, 
This, through countless ages, 

Men and Angels sing.

At the Name of Jesus 

Every knee shall bow, 
Every tongue confess Him 

King of glory now; 
'Tis the Father's pleasure 

We should call Him Lord, 
Who from the beginning 

Was the Mighty Word. 

At I lis voice creation 

Sprang at once to sight, 
All the angel faces, 

All the hosts of light, 
Thrones and dominations, 

Stars upon their way, 
All the heavenly orders, 

In their great array. 



Humbled for a season, 

To receive a name 
From the lips of sinners 

Unto whom He came, 
Faithfully He bore it 

Spotless to the last, 
Brought it back victorious, 

When from death He passed: 

Bore it up triumphant, 

With its human light, 
Through all ranks of creatures, 

To the central height; 
To the Throne of Godhead, 

To the Father's breast, 
Filled it with the glory 

Of that perfect rest. 



Name Him, brothers, name Him, 

With love as strong as death, 
But with awe and wonder, 

And with 'bated breath; 
He is God the Saviour, 

He is Christ the Lord* 
Ever to be worshipped, 

Trusted, and adored. 



In your hearts enthrone Him; 
There let Him subdue 

All that is not holy, 

All that is not true; 
Crown Him as your captain 

In temptation's hour; 
Let His Will enfold you 

In its light and power. 



Brothers, this Lord Jesus 

Shall return again, 
With His Father's glory, 

With His angel train; 
For all wreaths of empire 

Meet upon His l> row, 
And our hearts confess Him 

King of glory now.

We are soldiers of Christ, Who is mighty to save, 

And His banner the cross is unfurled; 
We are pledged to be faithful and steadfast and brave 

Against Satan, the flesh and the world. 

W 7 e are brothers and comrades, we stand side by side, 
And our faith and our hope are the same ; 

And we think of the cross on which Jesus has died, 
When we bear the reproach of His name. 

At the font we were marked with the cross on our brow, 

Of our grace and our calling the sign; 
And the weakest is strong to be true to his vow ; 

For the armor we wear is divine. 

We will watch ready armed if the tempter draws near, 

If he come with a frown or a smile; 
We will heed not his threats, nor his flatteries hear, 

Nor be taken by storm nor by wile. 

We will master the flesh, and its longing restrain, 

We will not be the bondslaves of sin, 
The pure Spirit of God in our nature shall reign 

And our spirits their triurpph shall win. 



For the world's love we live not, its hate we defy, 

And we will not be led by the throng; 
We'll be true to ourselves, to our Father on high, 

And the bright world to which we belong. 

Now let each cheer his comrade, let hearts beat as one, 
While we follow where Christ leads the way, 

'Twere dishonor to yield, or the battle to shun, 
We will fight, and will watch, and will pray. 

Though the warfare be weary, the trial be sore, 
In the might of our God we will stand; 

Oh, what joy to be crowned and be pure evermore 
In the peace of our own fatherland!

Songs of praise the angels sang, 
Heaven with alleluias rang, 
When creation was begun, 
When God spake and it was done. 

Songs of praise awoke the morn 
When the Prince of peace was born; 
Songs of praise 3 rose when He 
Captive led captivity. 



Heaven and earth must pass away, 
Songs of praise shall crown that day; 
God will make new heavens and earth, 
Songs of praise shall hail their birth. 

And will man alone be dumb 
Till that glorious kingdom come? 
No, the Church delights to raise 
Psalms and hymns and songs of praise. 



Saints below, with heart and voice, 
Still in songs of praise rejoice, 
Learning here, by faith and love, 
Songs of praise to sing above. 

Hymns of glory, songs of praise, 
Father, unto Thee we raise; 
Jesus, glory unto Thee, 
With the Spirit ever be.

Those eternal bowers 

Man hath never trod, 
Those unfading flowers 

Round the throne of God : 
Who may hope to gain them 

After weary light? 
Who at length attain them, 

Clad in robes of white? 

He who gladly barters 

All on earthly ground; 
He who, like the martyrs, 

Says, "I will be crowned:" 
He whose one oblation 

Is a life of love, 
Clinging to the nation 

Of the blest above. 



Shame upon you, legions 

Of the heavenly King, 
Citizens of regions 

Past imagining! 
What! with pipe and tabor 

Fool away the light, 
When He bids you labor — 

When He tells you, "Fight! 

While we do our duty, 

Struggling through the tide, 
Whisper Thou of beauty 

On the other side! 
What though sari the story 

Of this life's distress: 
Oh, the future glory! 

Oh, the loveliness!

Shepherd, good and gracious, 

Jesus, Lord of all, 
Leading, though we linger, 

Hearing when we call; 
Thee we love to follow 

Joyful all the way; 
As in early morning 

So in closing day. 

Shepherd good, defend us 
Through the garish day, 

When the flowery pathway 
Lures our feet astray ; 

Then, Thyself revealing, 
Bring that better joy 

Earth could never promise, 
Death can ne'er de-troy. 



Shepherd good, be near us 

Through the gloomy night, 
When the foes we see not 

Most our hearts affright; 
Round the home of sorrow, 

O'er the couch of pain, 
Breathe, oh, pitying Saviour, 

Peace and health again! 

Shepherd good, recall us 

If we fall away ; 
Plead for us in mercy 

When we cannot pray; 
When our wasted bodies 

Yield their latest breath, 
Draw our life to glory 

Through the gates of death.

Through the night of doubt and sorrow 

Onward goes the pilgrim band, 
Sinking songs of expectation, 

Marching to the promised land. 
Clear before us through the darkness 

Gleams and burns the guiding light; 
Brother clasns the hand of brother, 

Stepping fearless through the night. 

One the light of God's own presence 
O'er His ransomed people shed, 

Chasing far the gloom and terror. 
Brightening all the path we tread. 



One the object of our journey, 
One the faith which never tires, 

One the earnest looking forward, 
One the hope our God inspires: 

One the strain that lips of thousands 

Lift as from the heart of one; 
One the conflict, one the peril, 

One the march in God begun: 
One the gladness of rejoicing 

On the far eternal shore, 
Where the one Almighty Father 

Reigns in love for evermore. 



Onward therefore, pilgrim brothers, 
Onward with the Cross our aid! 

Bear its shame, and fight its battle, 
Till we rest beneath its shade. 



Soon shall come the great awaking, 
Soon the rending of the tomb 

Then the scattering of all shadows, 
And the end of toil and gloom.

Jerusalem, the golden, 

With milk and honey blest, 
Beneath thy contemplation 

Sink heart and voice opprest: 
• I know not, O, I know not 

What joys await us there, 
What radiancy of glory, 

What bliss beyond compare. 

They stand, those halls of Zion, 

All jubilant with song, 
And bright with many an angel, 

And all the martyr throng. 
The Prince is ever in them, 

The daylight is serene ; 
The pastures of the blessed 

Are decked in glorious sheen. 



There is the throne of David ; 

And there, from care released, 
The shout of them that triumph, 

The song of them that feast. 
And they, who, with their Leader, 

Have conquered in the fight, 
For ever and for ever 

Are clad in robes of white. 

O sweet and blessed country, 

The home of God's elect! 
O sweet and blessed country, 

That eager hearts expect! 
Jesus, in mercy bring us 

To that dear land of rest; 
Who art, with God the Father, 

And Spirit, ever blest.

Return to this Thy house of prayer : 
Assembled in Thy sacred name, 



Where we Thy parting promise claim : 
Hosanna, Lord! &c. 

But, chiefest, in our cleansed breast, 
Eternal! bid Thy Spirit rest; 
And make our secret souls to be 
A temple pure, and worthy Thee. 
Hosanna, Lord! &c. 

So in the last and dreadful day, 
When earth and heaven shall melt away, 
Thy flock, redeemed from sinful stain, 
Shall swell the sound of praise again.

And martyrs brave and patient saints 

Have stood for Thee in tire and strife. 
We wear the cross they wore of old, 

Our lips have learned like vows to 
We need not die; we cannot right; [make; 

What may we do for Jesus' sake ? 
O day by day each Christian child 

Has much to do. without, within; 
A death to die for Jesus' sake, 

A weary war to wage with sin.

And tears of passion in our eyes; 
Then we may stay the angry blow, 

Then we may check the hasty word, 
Give gentle answers back again, 

And fight a battle for our Lord. 
W 7 ith smiles of peace and looks of love, 

Light in our dwellings we may make, 
Bid kind good-humor brighten there, 

And do all still for Jesus' sake. 
There's not a child so weak and small 

But has his little cross to take, 
His little work of love and praise, 

That he may do for Jesus' sake.

Round Thy throne of light, 
Angel harps for ever ringing, 

Rest not day nor night : 
Thousands only live to bless Thee, 
And confess Thee, 
Lord of might! 

Thou, Who art beyond the farthest 

Mortal eye can scan, 
Can it be that Thou regardest 

Songs of sinful man ? 
Can we know that Thou art near us, 
And wilt hear us? 
Yea! we can. 

Yea, we know that Thou rejoicest 

O'er each work of Thine: 
Thou didst ears, and hands, and voices, 



For Thy praise combine; 
Craftsman's art and music's measure 
For Thy pleasure 
Didst design. 

In Thy house, great God, we offer 

Of Thine own to Thee, 
And for Thine acceptance proffer 

All unworthily 
Hearts,and minds, and hands, and voices, 
In our choicest 
Melody. 

Honor, glory, might, and merit, 

Thine shall ever be, 
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, 

Blessed Trinity! 
Of the best that Thou hast given, 
Earth and heaven 
Render Thee !

Wiping every tear; 
Folded in His bosom, 

What have we to fear? 
Only let us follow 

Whither He doth lead, 
To the thirsty desert, 

Or the dewy mead. 

Jesus is our Shepherd : 

Well we know His voice; 
How its gentlest whisper 

Makes our heart rejoice; 
Even when He chicJeth 

Tender is its tone : 
None but He shall guide us,

Jesus is our Shepherd: 

For the sheep He bled, 
Every lamb is sprinkled 

With the blood He shed: 
Then on each He setteth 

His own secret sign : 
"They that have My Spirit, 

These," saith He, "are Mine.' 

Jesus is our Shepherd : 

Guarded by His arm, 
Though the wolves may raven, 

None can do us harm. 
When we tread death's valley, 

Dark with fearful gloom, 
We will fear no evil, 

Victors o'er the tomb.

Come, brothers, old and young, 
Uplift your hearts and voices, 

Be praise on every tongue. 
In God's own house we gather, 

Our yearly feast to hold ; 
Come, join our joyful anthem, 

Ye brothers, young and old. 

Come, sing with us the praises 
Of God's preserving care, 

Who safe from harm has kept us 
Throughout another year; 



And crowned our lives with mercies 
Unnumbered as the sand, 

Which day by day have reached us 
From His all gracious hand. 

Come, sing with us the praises 

Of God's redeeming love, 
That song which never ceases 

Around the throne above; 
The voice of many angels, 

"Worthy the Lamb of God; 
For He was slain to save us 

By His most precious blood." 



Come, praise Him for glad tidings 

Heard in this hallowed place — 
Glad tidings of salvation, 

By free and sovereign grace; 
For gifts of Holy Scripture, 

Known from our childhood's days; 
For call from heaven to serve Him 

In wisdom's happy ways. 



Come, praise Him for the promise 

Of strength in weakness given; 
For means of grace provided; 

For blessed hope of heaven. 
Oh, Christian youths and maidens! 

Oh, brothers, old and young! 
Uplift your hearts and voices, 

And let His praise be sung.

On the pathway, rough and steep, 
Through this weary wilderness.

Lead us in the narrow way. • 

There are stony ways to tread; 

Give the strength we ?orely lack : 
There are tangled paths to thread; 

Shed Thy light upon the track.

Cold and sunless, vast and drear,

Sunny slopes, and scented shades; 
Keep us, Lord, from slothful ease.

Upward still to purer heights, 
Onward yet to scenes more blest, 

Calmer regions, clearer lights, 
Till we reach the promised rest.

Scarce we lift our streaming eyes;

Hail to the Lord's Anointed, 

Great David's greater Son! 
Hail, in the time appointed, 

His reign on earth begun! 
He comes to break oppression, 

To set the captive free ; 
To take away transgression, 

And rule in equity. 

He comes with succor speedy 

To those who suffer wrong, 
To help the poor and needy, 

And bid the weak be strong; 
To give them songs for sighing, 

Their darkness turn to light, 
Whose souls, condemned and dying, 

Were precious in His sight. 



He shall descend like showers 

Upon the fruitful earth; 
And love and joy, like flowers, 

Spring in His path to birth: 
Before him, on the mountains, 

Shall peace, the herald, go; 
And righteousness, in fountains, 

From hill to valley flow. 

To Him shall prayer unceasing, 

And daily vows ascend; 
His kingdom still increasing, 

A kingdom without end; 
The tide of time shall never 

His covenant remove; 
His name shall stand for ever; 

That Name to us is Love.

We sing a loving Jesus, 

Who left His throne above, 
And came on earth to ransom 

The children of His love; 
It is an oft-told story, 

And yet we love to tell 
How Christ, the King of glory, 

Once deigned with man to dwell. 

We sing a holy Jesus, 

No taint of sin defiled 
The Babe of David's city, 

The pure and stainless Child; 
Oh, teach us, blessed Saviour, 

Thy heavenly grace to seek, 
And let our whole behavior, 

Like Thine, be mild and meek. 

We sing a lowly Jesus, 

No kingly crown He had ; 

His heart was bowed with anguish, 
His Face was marred and sad; 



In deep humiliation 

He came, His work to do, 

O Lord of our salvation, 
Let us be humble too. 

We sing a mighty Jesus, 

Whose Voice could raise the dead; 
The sightless eyes He opened, 

The famished souls He fed. 
Thou earnest to deliver 

Mankind from sin and shame; 
Redeemer and life-giver, 

We praise Thy holy Name. 

We sing a coming Jesus, 

The time is drawing near, 
When Christ with all His angels 

In glory shall appear: 
Lord, save us, we entreat Thee, 

In this Thy day of grace,

Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee! 
E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me, 

Still all my song shall be — 
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee. 

Though like the wanderer (the sun gone down,) 
Darkness comes over me — my rest a stone; 

Yet in my dreams I'd be 
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee. 

Then let the way appear steps unto heaven, 
All that Thou sendest me in mercy given; 

Angels to beckon me 
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee. 

Then, with my waking thoughts bright with Thy praise, 
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I'll raise; 

So by my woes to be 
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee. 

Or if on joyful wing cleaving the sky, 
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upwards I fly, 

Still all my song shall be, 
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee.

Onward, children! onward! leave the paths of sin: 
Hasten to the strait gate, strive to enter in : 
None can knock unheeded, none can strive in vain, 
For the Saviour's welcome, all that seek obtain. 

Onward, children! onward! is the call to-day; 

Come with ready footsteps, and that call obey. 

Onward, children! onward! in the narrow way, 
Christ your Lord shall lead you safely day by day, 
And with such a Leader what have you to fear? 
Satan may oppose you, but your King is near. 
Onward, children! &c. 



Onward, children! onward! seek no cross to shun; 
Mind when night approaches, that your work is done, 
That you may with gladness, as life closes here, 
Enter death's dark valley, having naught to fear. 
Onward, children ! &c. 

Onward, children! onward! guardian angels sing; 
Hasten to the palace of your God and King; 
Clad in heavenly armor, to the end endure; 
You with Christ shall triumph, victory is sure. 
Onward, children ! &c. 

Onward, ever onward! till you join the throng 
Who in dazzling raiment sing the triumph-song; 
And to heavenly music cry with one accord, 
"Holy! holy! holy! is our sovereign Lord. M 
Onward, children! &c.

The Church's one foundation 

Is Jesus Christ her Lord; 
She is His new creation 

By water and the word : 
From heaven He came and sought her 

To be His holy bride ; 
With His own blood He bought her, 

And for her life He died. 

Elect from every nation, 

Yet one o'er ail the earth, 
Her charter of salvation 

One Lord, one faith, one birth; 
One holy name she blesses, 

Partakes one holy food, 
And to one hope she presses 

With every grace endued. 

Though with a scornful wonder 

Men see her sore opprest, 
By schisms rent asunder, 

By heresies distresl ; 



i 



Yet saints their watch are keeping. 
Their cry goes up, "How long?" 

And soon the night of weeping 
Shall be the morn of song. 

Mid toil and tribulation, 

And tumult of her war, 
She waits the consummation 

Of peace for evermore; 
Till with the vision glorious 

Her longing eyes are blest, 
And the great Church victorious 

Shall be the Church at rest. 

Yet she on earth hath union 

With God the Three in One; 
And mystic sweet communion 

With those whose rest is won; 
Oh, happy ones and holy! 

Lord, give us grace that we, 
Like thtm the meek and lowly, 

On hi^h may dwell with Thee.

Here to suffer, bleed, and die, 

That my soul might be forgiven, 
And ascend to God on high ! 

Father! let Thy Holy Spirit 
Still reveal a Saviour's love, 

And prepare me to inherit 

Glory where He reigns above. 

There, with saints and angels dwelling, 
May I that great love proclaim, 

And with them be ever telling 
All the wonders of His name.

Praise from youthful lips ascending 

Wilt Thou deign to own? 
Whilt Thou hear us while we bless Thee, 
And confess Thee 
God alone ? 

While the heavens declare Thy glory 

To the listening earth, 
While the angels sing the story 

Of creation's birth, 
Wilt Thou hear our child-notes swelling, 
Gladly telling 
Jesus' worth? 



Yes, Thou wilt; for Thou dost love us, 

Cam'st for us to die; 
Bending from Thy throne above us, 

With a pitying eye, 
Well we know that Thou art near us, 
And wilt hear us 
When we cry. 

Then our humble praises bringing, 

We will seek Thy face ; 
Hymns w r ith grateful voices singing, 

In this hallowed place. 
We will dare to come before Thee, 
And adore Thee,

Bid Thine angels guard us well 

From all harm and fear.

When temptations rise; 
Keep Thy little ones from sin, 

Fix their wandering eyes.

On our brow we bear;

Hark ! how the heavenly anthem drowns 

All music but its own ! 
Awake, my soul, and sing 

Of Him Who died for thee; 
And hail Him as thy matchless King 

Through all eternity. 

Crown Him the Virgin's Son! 

The God incarnate born, 
Whose arm those crimson trophies won 

Which now His brow adorn. 
Fruit of the Mystic Rose, 

True Branch of Jesse's stem, 
The Root whence mercy ever flows, 

The Babe of Bethlehem ! 

Crown Him the Lord of Love! 

Behold His hands and side, — 
Those wounds, yet visible above, 

In beauty glorified : 



No angel in the sky 

Can fully bear that sight, 
But downward bends his wondering eye 

At mysteries so bright. 

Crown Him the Lord of Peace ! 

Whose power a sceptre sways 
In heaven and earth, that wars may cease, 

And all be prayer and praise. 
His reign shall know no end ; 

And round His pierced feet 
Fair flowers of Paradise extend 

Their fragrance ever sweet. 

Crown Him the Lord of Heaven! 

One with the Father known, — 
And the blest Spirit, through Him given 

From yonder Triune throne ! 
All hail, Redeemer, hail! 

For thou hast died for me : 
Thy praise and glory shall not fail 

Throughout eternity.

Give thanks to Him, O children, 

Who lived a child on earth. 
He loved the little children, 

And called them to His side, 
His loving arms embraced them, 

And for their sake He died.

With songs of holy joy; 
For Thou on earth didst sojourn 

A pure and spotless boy.

The mention of Thy glory

And medicine in sickness, 

And love, and life, and rest.

Paradise of joy! 
Where tears are ever banished, 

And smiles have no alloy;

The Crucified thy praise ; 

His laud and benediction 
Thy ransomed people raise. 

With jasper glow Thy bulwarks, 

Thy streets with emeralds blaze; 
The sard i us and the topaz 

Unite in thee their rays; 
Thine ageless walls are bonded 

W 7 ith amethyst unpriced ; 
The saints built up its fabric, 

A'nd the corner-stone is Christ. 



Thou hast no shore, fair ocean ! 

Thou hast no time, bright day! 
Dear fountain of refreshment 

To pilgrims far away! 
Upon the Rock of Ages 

They raise Thy holy tower; 
Thine is the victor's laurel, 

And Thine the golden dower.

The Home of God's elect!

That eager hearts expect!

To that dear land of rest ; 
Who art, with God the Father,

When morning gilds the skies, 
My heart awaking cries, 

May Jesus Christ be praised : 
Alike at work and prayer 
To Jesus I repair; 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

Whene'er the sweet church bell 
Peals over hill and dell, 

May Jesus Christ be praised : 
O hark to what it sings, 
As joyously it rings, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

My tongue shall never tire 
Of chanting with the choir, 

May Je^us Christ be praised : 
This song of sacred joy, 
It never seems to cloy, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 



When sleep her balm denies, 
My silent spirit sighs, 

May Jesus Christ be praised: 
When evil thoughts molest, 
With this I shield my breast, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

Does sadness fill my mind? 
A solace here I find, 

May Jesus Christ be praised : 
Or fades my earthly bliss? 
My comfort still is this, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

The night becomes as day, 
When from the heart we say, 

May Jesus Christ be praised: 
The powers of darkness fear. 
When this sweet chant they hear, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 



In heaven's eternal bliss 
The loveliest strain is this, 

May Jesus Christ be praised: 
Let earth, and sea, and sky 
From depth to height reply, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 



Be this, while life is mine, 
My canticle Divine, 

May Jesus Christ be praised: 
Be this the eternal song 
Through ages all along, 

May Jesus Christ be praised.

No home on earth is like it, 

Nor can with it compare,

Nor can be happier there.

Yea, crowns oi brightest glory, 

Which He shall sure bestow 
On all who love the Saviour, 

And walk with Him below. 



There are songs for little children. 

Above the bright blue sky, 
And harps of sweetest music 

For their hymn of victory : 
And all above is pleasure, 

And found in Christ alone; 
Oh come, dear little children, 

That all may be your own !

How can we serve Thee, Lord, 

How sing aright Thy praise, 
To Whom Angelic Hosts, 

Their songs of triumph raise ?• 
How can our feeble tongues 

The Heavenly Anthem swell, 
And in Thy Church on earth 

Thy joys and glories tell? 

Dear Lord! we know not how, 
But Thou Thyself hast said 

That, " out of infants' lips," 
Thy praise is perfected; 



So now accept the gift 

Of heart and voice we bring, 
And teach us, Gracious Lord, 

To love Thee while we sing! 

Teach us to cast ourselves 

In worship at Thy Feet, 
And, for our holy work, 

O Jesus! make us meet; 
Daily increase us, Lord, 

With faith, and hope, and love r 
That we at last may join 

The Angel-Choirs above!

Thou, Who, throned above all glory, 
Yet didst not disdain to dwell, 

Infant of a Jewish mother, 
As a child in Israel, 

Lord and Saviour, 
Give us grace to know Thee well. 

Ransomed by Thy Cross and Passion, 

Thine, and Thine alone are we; 
From this world of sin and sorrow, 



Keep, O Lord, Thy children free; 

Lord and Saviour, 
Give us grace to follow Thee. 

Still through every earthly trial 
May we hold Thy promise fast; 

And when this short life is over, 
And the pains of death are past, 

Lord and Saviour, 
Bring us to Thy home at last

Who is on the Lord's side ? 
Who will serve the king? 
Who will be His helpers 

Other lives to bring? 
Who will leave the world's side? 

Who will face the foe ? 
Who is on the Lord's side? 
Who for Him will go? 
By Thy call of mercy, 

By Thy grace divine, 
We are on the Lord's side, 
Saviour, we are Thine ! 

Not for weight of glory, 

Not for crown and palm, 
Enter we the army, 

Raise the warrior psalm. 
But for love that claimeth 

Lives for whom He died, 
He whom Jesus nameth 
Must be on the His side. 
By Thy love constraining, 

By Thy grace divine, 

We are on the Lord's side, 

Saviour, we are Thine! 



Jesus, Thou hast bought us, 

Not with gold or gem, 
But with Thine own life-blood, 

For Thy diadem. 
With Thy blessing rilling 

Each who comes to Thee, 
Thou hast made us willing, 
Thou hast made us free. 
By Thy grand redemption, 

By Thy grace divine, 
We are on the Lord's side, 
Saviour, we are Thine ! 

Fierce may be the conflict, 

Strong may be the foe, 
But the king's own army 

None can overthrow. 
Round His standard ranging 

Victory is secure, 
For His truth unchanging 
Makes the triumph sure. 
Joyfully enlisting 

By Thy grace divine, 
We are on the Lord's side, 
Saviour, we are Thine ! 



Chosen to be soldiers 

In an alien land, 
"Chosen, called, and faithful" 

For our Captain's band. 
In the service royal; 

Let us not grow cold, 
Let us be right loyal, 
Noble, true, and bold. 

Master, Thou wilt keep us, 

By Thy grace divine, 
Always on the Lords side, 
Saviour, always Thine !

Hi 



Onward ! onward ! march to glory, 
Tread each footprint of the Lord, 
Who hath taught in gospel story 
How to gain the great reward. 
Here we pass through desert dreary, 
Here are realms of starless night, 
Yit, though weak our limbs, and weary, 
We may win the city bright. 

Onward ! onward ! march to glory, 
Tread each footprint of the I ord, 
Who hath taught in gospel story 
How to gain the great reward. 



Though for sin our hearts must sorrow, 

Though temptations round us throng, 
Hymns of angels let us borrow, 

Jesus, Saviour, be our song. 
And while loud our anthems ringing, 

One harmonious strain upraise, 
Let our lives be like our singing, 

Let no discord mar our praise. 
Onward ! onward ! &c. 

Let us march to take our station 

With the white-robed choirs on high, 
Out of every age and nation 

Who to God's high throne are nigh; 
We on earth like worship leading 

Lives like theirs must strive to live, 
And, His merits always pleading, 

Unto Christ our being give.' 
Onward! onward! &c. 



First in earliest childhood's morning, 

From our sins He sets us free, 
And, with all His grace adorning, 

Chooses us His own to be; 
Then, when Satan's hosts would steal us 

From His fold with envious might, 
With His Spirit He doth seal us, 

Strengthen, arm us for the fight. 
Onward! onward! &c. 

Onward then, nor faint, nor falter, 

Onward to the rest above; 
Christ His promise will not alter, 

But will meet us in His love. 
Now with voice and understanding, 

Psalms and hymns of joy upraise, 
And with choirs of angels banding, 

Father, Son, and Spirit praise. 
Onward! onward! &c.

Before Thine awful presence, Lord, 

Thy sinful servants bow; 
Trembling to speak the solemn word, 

To frame the sacred vow. 

The sins in hours of weakness wrought, 
The vain things loved before, 

The wanton deed and word and thought, 
Lord, we renounce once more. 

Once more we vow the holy Faith 
To keep unstained and true; 

Once more we promise unto death 
Thy holy will to do. 



Again we gird us to the fight, 

Again we face the foe, 
Resolved, beneath Thy banner bright, 

Where Thou shalt lead to go; 

O Father, pardon all the past; 

Give back Thy wasted grace; 
And strengthen us, while life shall last, 

To run the heavenward race. 

Still let Thy blessed Spirit's aid 
Our strength and comfort be; 

Then, though we sometime be afraid, 
We still will trust in Thee.

O Word of God incarnate, 

O wisdom from on high, 
O truth unchanged, unchanging, 

O Light of our dark sky! 
We praise Thee for the radiance 

That from the hallowed page, 
A lantern to our footsteps, 

Shines on from age to age. 

The Church from her dear Master 

Received the gift divine, 
And still that light she lifteth 

O'er all the earth to shine. 
It is the golden casket 

Where gems of truth are stored, 
It is the heaven-drawn picture 

Of Christ the living Word. 



It floateth like a banner 

Before God's host unfurled, 
It shineth like a beacon 

Above the darkling world; 
It is the chart and compass 

That o'er life's surging sea, 
Mid mists, and rocks, and quicksands, 

Still guide, O Christ, to Thee. 

O make Thy Church, dear Saviour, 

A lamp of burnished gold, 
To bear before the nations 

Thy true light as of old ; 
O teach Thy wandering pilgrims 

By this their paths to trace, 
Till, clouds and darkness ended, 

They see Thee face to face.

Come, sing with holy gladness 

High Alleluias sing; 
Uplift your loud Hosannas 

To Jesus, Lord and King: 
Sing, boys, in joyful chorus 

Your hymn of praise today; 
And sing, ye gentle maidens, 

Your sweet responsive lay. 

'Tis good for boys and maidens 

Sweet hymns to Christ to sing; 
'Tis meet that children's voices 

Should praise the children's King; 
For Jesus is salvation, 

And glory, grace, and rest; 
To babe, and boy, and maidon 

The one Redeemer blest. 



r 



O boys, be strong in Jesus! 

To toil for Him is gain; 
And Jesus wrought with Joseph 

With chisel, saw, and plane. 
O maidens, live for Jesus, 

Who was a maiden's Son ! 
Be patient, pure, and gentle, 

And perfect grace begun. 

Soon in the golden city 

The boys and girls shall play, 
And through the dazzling mansions 

Rejoice in endless day. 
O Christ, prepare Thy children 

With that triumphant throng 
To pass the burnished portals, 

And sing the eternal song.

Hearken to our praises, O Thou God of love ! 

If with honest-hearted love for God and man, 
Day by day Thou find us doing what we can, 
Thou who giv'st the seed-time wilt give large increase, 
Crown the head with blessings, fill the heart with peace,

Conquered hath our Leader, vanquished is our foe!

Who, if we be faithful, can our hope destroy?

Unto God the Saviour thankful hearts we bring; 
Unto God the Spirit bow we and adore, 
On our way rejoicing now and evermore !

Praise to the Holiest in the height, 
And in the depth be praise; 

In all His words most wonderful, 
Most sure in all His ways. 

O loving wisdom of our God! 

When all was sin and shame, 
A second Adam to the fight 

And to the rescue came. 

O wisest love ! that flesh and blood, 

Which did in Adam fail, 
Should strive afresh against the foe, 

Should strive and should prevail; 



And that a higher gift than grace 
Should flesh and blood refine, 

God's Presence and His very Self, 
And Essence all-divine. 

O generous love! that He, Who smote 

In Man for man the foe, 
The double agony in Man 

For man should undergo ; 

And in the garden secretly, 

And on the Cross on high, 
Should teach His brethren, and inspire 

To suffer and to die. 



Praise to the Holiest in the height, 
And in the depth be praise; 

In all His words most wonderful, 
Most sure in all His ways.

Lord, shall Thy children come to Thee? 

A boon of love divine we seek ; 
Brought to Thine arms in infancy, 

Ere heart could feel, or tongue could speak, 
Thy children pray for grace, that they 
May come themselves to Thee to-day. 

Lord, shall we come? and come again, 

Oft as we see Thy table spread, 
And tokens of Thy dying pain, 

The wine poured out, the broken bread? 
Bless, bless, O Lord, Thy children's prayer, 
That they may come and find Thee there. 

Lord, shall we come? not thus alone, 

At holy time, or solemn rite, 
But every hour till life be flown, 

Through weal or woe, in gloom or light, 
Come to Thy throne of grace, that we 
In faith, hope, love, confirmed may be. 

Lord, shall we come? come yet again? 

Thy children ask one blesssng more : 
To come, not now alone; — but then 

When life, and death, and time are o'er, 
Then, then to come, O Lord, and be 
Confirmed in heaven, confirmed by Thee.

Forward! be our watchword, 

Steps and voices joined; 
Seek the things before us, 

Not a look behind; 
Burns the fiery pillar 

At our army's head ; 
Who shall dream of .shrinking, 
By our Captain led ? 

Forward through the desert, 

Through the toil and fight ; 
Jordan flows before us, 
Sion beams with light. 

Forward, when in. childhood 

Buds the infant mind; 
All through youth and manhood, 

Not a thought behind ; 
Speed through realms of nature, 

Climb the steps of grace; 
Faint not, till in glory 

Gleams our Father's face. 

Forward all the life-time, 

Climb from height to height; 
Till the head be hoary, 
Till the eve be light. 

Forward, flock of Jesus, 

Salt of all the earth, 
Till each yearning purpose 

Spring to glorious birth ; 
Sick, they ask for healing, 

Blind, they grope for day ; 



Pour upon the nations 
Wisdom's loving ray, 

Forward, out of error, 

Leave behind the night; 
Forward through the darkness. 
Forward into light. 

Glories upon glories 

Hath our God prepared, 
By the souls that love Him 

One day to be shared ; 
Eye hath not beheld them, 

Ear hath never heard ; 
Nor of these hath uttered 
Thought or speech a word; 

Forward, marching eastward 

Where the heaven is bright, 
Till the veil be lifted, 
Till our faith be sight. 

Far o'er yon horizon 

Rise the city towers, 
Where our God abideth; 
That fair home is ours : 
Flash the streets with jasper, 

Shine the streets with gold; 
Flows the gladdening river 
Shedding joys untold. 

Thither, onward thither, 
In the Spirit's might; 
Pilgrims to your country, 
Forward into light.

Tend a listening ear; 

When we bow before Thee, 
Children's praises hear. 

Though Thou art so holy, 
Heaven's Almighty King, 

Thou wilt stoop to listen, 
When Thy praise we sing. 

We are little children, 
Weak and apt to stray ; 



Saviour, guide and keep us 
In the heavenly way. 

Save us, Lord, from sinning; 

Watch us day by day; 
Help us now to love Thee; 

Take our sins away : 

Then, when Thou dost call us 
To our heavenly home, 

We shall gladly answer, 
Saviour, Lord, we come.
